    PICKERING: "A very impressive display of strength and mobility. Look at the top of that girl there. Both these girls are superb gymnasts. And I think they must have impressed the judges.



    "Not a massive bottom mount but you can see that this is a four-man pyramid. And look at the way this top mount gets to his balance position. Beautifully controlled and straight into a one-arm balance.



    "His second routine and there's the triple. There's the triple that Binder shoulders for the first time. Rasolin does it in a piked position. Not even tucked."
