4/ 29-year-old Jessica Lopez (VEN) casually opening on floor with a whip to triple.

5/ Ana Perez (ESP) showing a leap I’ve never seen before, followed by a whip-whip-bhs-bhs-double tuck stuck.

6/ One of the most amazing beam mounts, done by Zhanerke Duisek (KAZ).

7/ Belgium’s Lisa Verschueren scoring the third best E-score on FX (8.633).

8/ Alina Circene from Latvia with simply beautiful choreography on floor.

9/ My personal favourite: Sara Raposeiro’s adorable gymnastics puppet routine. The whole routine will put a smile on your face (x).
