At every Rebecca Andrade show, the Kitakyushu gym rattled with applause. A little less than three months after the Tokyo Olympics, the Olympic champion returned to Japan and performed in the gymnastics qualifiers. This morning (Tuesday morning in Japan), the 22-year-old gymnast advanced to the finals in vaulting (14,800 on average) and uneven bars (15,100) in the lead. Still waiting for the qualifiers to end to see if she’ll also decide the beam.

The show was not completed, because the favela ball was missing. Rebecca has already announced that she won’t be performing on the floor, thus also remaining out of the all-around individual competition, the race in which she is the current Vice-Champion of the Olympics. Since it’s a knee-demanding device, the gymnast chose to watch the trip to the Paris 2024 Games.
The Olympic vaulting champion will take her first world championship medal live on her main gear, on Saturday, at 4:45 a.m. (GMT). Before that, this Tuesday, at 9:20 p.m., Arthur Nouri and Kaio Souza are competing in the men’s qualifiers for places in the finals.
SportTV 2 will broadcast live the World Finals, and Give Monitors Brazilian qualifiers in real time.
Rebeca has already opened the dispute in her flagship device and it has started very well. She made both jumps from the Olympic qualifiers. On the toughest ride, Cheng, she ended up running out of the relegation zone and thus lost three tenths, but still had the highest score in the competition: 14,900 points. The second flight was a Yurchenko with a Double Pirouette approx. Only one step back in the end, 14,700 points. With an average of 14,800 points, he put himself in the lead and secured himself in the final.
Rebecca Andrade’s show continued on the asymmetric rails, the device she adores. Named the series. He received all calls from movements correctly and did not take any steps on his way out. Shake a lot and score: 15100 points (8.8 hits)! If at the 2018 World Cup Rebecca was a few tenths from the final, she was on top in Kitakyushu.
In her most difficult machine, Rebecca Andrade had three average misfires, but she made up for it with a quick exit to receive more applause. The score of 13,400 put her in the fight for a place in the final, but she still had to wait for the last group of gymnasts to deliver, and she could be overtaken by a maximum of two opponents.
