In the end, Larisa performed 4 routines in prelims, 3 in team finals, 4 in AA, and 1 in event finals. At no point was she showing her former brilliance due to the pain she was in. She used her bare minimum of difficulty initially, and then watered a full point down on her floor exercise in the all-around. A crash on her triple full in prelims and the impact of her double double clearly scared them into making her routine much safer, with the double double replaced by a full-twisting double back and her triple full downgraded to a double. Beam event finals was an unmitigated disaster. B&B gambled that she could outscore Bulimar if she stayed on the beam, and she certainly could have but she fell foul and came off on her full tuck. Given the state she was in, it is amazing she got through 12 competition routines at all. A sad loss for the all-around that she was too injured to really keep up. Here she is at her best, showing what she could have brought. At 16, she hopefully has a lot more to give than what was shown in London.
Skip to 0.22 for Larisa's really good amanar in the last one. Larisa had in potential start values a 6.5 vault, 6.3-6.5 bars, 6.8 beam and 6.7 floor.Even if you knock floor down a bit, that is amazing. Really hope she can make it to Rio, or at least one or more world championships.
