NANNING Cheap Max Pacioretty Jersey , China, Oct. 5 (Xinhua) -- Based on this week's training prior to the Nanning Gymnastics World Championships, Simone Biles of USA looks primed to defend her individual all-around title and the second consecutive team title in the women's competition that begins on Sunday.
Although Kyla Ross is the only gymnast in Nanning who was part of the gold medal-winning USA team at the London 2012 Olympic Games, she and her teammates enter the competition with highly difficult routines and the confidence yielded by their status as defending champions. Biles and Ross are likely to provide a hefty scoring base upon which their less-experienced team members can build.
Russia will count on veteran Aliya Mustafina to stabilize the otherwise relatively untested Russian team as they attempt to regain the title they won in 2010. Russia finished second to the USA at the 2011 world championships and 2012 Olympic Games and no team competition took place at the 2013 world championships.
Perhaps lacking the risk level of the USA team, Russia could gain an advantage over the field by capitalizing on their strength Cheap Andrew Shaw Jersey , which is execution.
China, Romania and Britain should push the U.S. and Russia for spots on the medal podium. Romania took bronze at the 2012 Olympic Games, and won team gold at this year's European championships in Sofia.
China's potentially high scores on uneven bars and beam could position them for at least a repeat of their bronze at the 2011 world championships. Britain surprised Russia at the 2014 European championships, earning silver to Russia's bronze.
In all-around, Biles Cheap Artturi Lehkonen Jersey , who dominated the 2013 world championships in Antwerp, has to be considered a favorite for gold in Nanning as well. Since Antwerp she has consolidated her already formidable routines, which range from a powerful vault to explosive tumbling elements on exercise.
Ross, the 2013 silver medallist, is likely to again find herself pushed by Mustafina Cheap Victor Mete Jersey , Larisa Iordache of Romania and Yao Jinnan of China for an all-around medal. She should be able to offset her comparatively moderate difficulty level by producing her typically high execution scores.
Nanning offers Mustafina the chance to regain the all-around title she won at the 2010 world championships. Currently her vault lacks the difficulty level of Biles and Ross, a tactic that is likely the result of the knee injury she sustained on a vault landing in 2011. Mustafina won the all-around bronze at the 2012 Olympic Games and 2013 world championships.
Stylish and steady, Iordache has no weak event, a factor that makes her a medal threat from start to finish. She narrowly missed an all-around medal at the 2013 world championships, where she finished fourth.
Yao Jinnan is perhaps China's top all-around medal prospect in Nanning. Yao Cheap Paul Byron Jersey , who placed fifth in all-around at the 2013 world championships, is especially strong on uneven bars and beam.
On vault, since two-time world vault champion McKayla Maroney of USA is not in Nanning because of injury, 2013 silver medallist Biles could seize the title on this apparatus by performing with her usual flight and force.
2013 bronze medallist Hong Un Jong of DPR Korea could match Biles for difficulty, but will need solid landings to challenge for gold.
Another medal contender on this apparatus is Giulia Steingruber of Switzerland Cheap Jeff Petry Jersey , who placed fourth at the 2013 world championships and first at this year's European championships. 39-year-old Oksana Chusovitina of Uzbekistan, who has won nine world championships medals on vault, including gold in 2003, has withdrawn from the competition in Nanning.
On uneven bars, with trademark Chinese amplitude Cheap Phillip Danault Jersey , Huang Huidan swung to first place at the 2013 world championships. She could repeat that achievement in Nanning by safely negotiating her release-and-regrasp elements and controlling the landing of her dismount.
Ross will look to hold off Mustafina, as she did at the 2013 world championships, where Ross took silver and Mustafina took gold. Mustafina's complex skill combinations earned her gold on this apparatus at the 2012 Olympic Games.
On beam, Mustafina, Ross and Biles could face one another in yet another apparatus final in Nanning. Mustafina barely outscored Ross for gold at the 2013 world championships Cheap Karl Alzner Jersey , where Biles took bronze.
Other gymnasts with medal potential on this apparatus include 2014 European beam champion Maria Kharenkova of Russia, 2014 European beam silver medallist Iordache, China's Yao and Shang Chunsong.
On floor exercise, Biles, the 2013 gold medallist Cheap Alexander Radulov Jersey , earned a loud round of applause after she finished her routine in Wednesday's podium training. Early spectator response to Biles' soaring acrobatic elements indicate she has the potential to capture the crowd's attention and the title in Nanning too, should she advance to this apparatus final.
Likely to challenge Biles for the top spot on this apparatus are Vanessa Ferrari of Italy, the 2013 worlds silver medallist; Iordache, the 2013 worlds bronze medallist and Mustafina, the 2012 Olympic floor exercise bronze medallist.
The women's competition includes qualifications and finals for team Cheap Jonathan Drouin Jersey , all-around and each of the four apparatus. Teams and gymnasts will earn berths to the finals based on their performances in the qualifications on Sunday and Monday
From qualifications, the top eight teams will advance to the team final; the top 24 all-around gymnasts (maximum two per national federation) will advance to the all-around final; and the top eight gymnasts on each apparatus (maximum two per national federation) will advance to the respective apparatus finals.
Nanning will serve an an important step for teams hoping to compete at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. The top 24 teams in qualifications will advance to the Gymnastics World Championships in Glasgow in 2015, where the top eight teams will ea
