2011 World Gymnastics Championships: Womens Team Final Tweets

Here is a compilation of many of the live-tweets from the arena to commemorate this amazing night of Gymnastics!

7:53 WOOHOO GO USA!!!! @CMemmel
7:53 Raisman mounts with a 1.5 to double Arab. Double piked Arabian. triple full beautiful - sticks it. double pike -- I think USA just won! @USAGym
7:48 Wieber FX: 14.766 Raisman needs better than a 10.584 to give the United States its third ever World Team title! #USAGym
7:47 Wieber FX: dbl dbl easy! wow. 1.5 thru to triple! triple turn spot on. 2.5+front lay clean, small hop, toes went oob. Dbl pike. awesome! @gymnastike
7:45 14.566 (5.90/8.666) for Maroney on FX. Wieber is next, the Raisman will bring it home. @gymnastike
7:42 Maroney USA-3.5 twist very high! Crowd clapping, 2.5 front full, 1.5 to dbl tuck took is straight up and down @dmoceanu
7:39 US needs to score 39.916 on FX to catch Russia. That's a 13.3 average. @nrarmour
7:37 Russia has silver unless USA has huge problems. They won't go below that, though. @BTOgymblog
7:35 I'm liking Komova for Olympic champion. These setbacks at her first Worlds might MOTIVATE more serious training leading up to London. @GymCoaching
7:33 Agreed // RT @icoachgymnastix: Komova psychologically out after beam. Not fighting after stumbling back after first pass. @Double_Front
7:32 Big stumble for Komova on double arabian mount on FX @Double_Front
7:31 Since Maroney didn't make FX finals, I hope she gives a good performance today. @Double_Front
7:27 US has 135.413, Russia at 132.263. That's a 3.15 lead going into final rotation. @gymnastike
7:24 Ponor Floor ... Best routine of the day, so far. It's got everything. ... Couple of landing deductions. @gymcoaching
7:24 Dementyeva BB: quite the foot shuffle save after swtich leap+back tuck, but she made everything else. rnoff, bhs triple a tad shy @gymnastike
7:22 Komova 13.866 on beam @theallaround
7:21 Ponor is doing a nice routine on floor starting with a quad turn to a popa and a nice double layout. @USAGym
7:18 Was doing a back handspring series and dropped off on last one. Don't think Russia can recover from that, not when already trailing. @nrarmour
7:16 Ishina BB: front aerial+bhs lay. wobble on side somi. good side aerial. leg loose on switch ring. Stayed on. Komova is next @gymnastike
7:13 A 15.033 for Wieber gives US 135.413 points. Your turn, Russia. @nrarmour
7:12 I love that if the USA wins, it's because of their performance, not because of someone else's missed performance @intlgymforum
7:09 A 14.866 for @Aly_Raisman @nrarmour
7:08 Aly Raisman is a machine--completely unfazed by the pressure. Super solid beam routine. Only two tiny wobbles and a small step on dismount @Double_Front
7:08 Not a lot of emotion from @Aly_Raisman as she leaves podium. Like, "Yeah, that's what I expected to do." @Nrarmour
7:06 Raisman BB: punch front solid. bhs lay 2 ft. punch pike+lay stepout. switch 1/2+back pike. switch+back tuck. Lturn. Excellent Patterson! wow @gymnastike
7:05 Vega BB: 14.833 @USAGym
7:04 What in the world... Tan Sixin completely botched her 1st tumbling pass. Hit her face and crumbled to the floor on rndoff bhs. oh no. @gymnastike
7:01 Vega BB: swtich 1/2 stop. side aerial. f aerial+bhs lay. front tuck. swich+back pike. switch ring. bhs bhs dbl pike great! @intlgymnast
7:00 Marta Karolyi is hunched forward peering on from the stands as Team USA begins beam. @intlgymnast
6:59 Jordyn and Team USA Hit Uneven Bars...Leading Russia after two rotations. @JohnGGeddert
6:56 Team USA hit all their UB sets, they're on a roll tonight. I think they'll run away with it barring any unforeseen mishaps. @dmoceanu
6:55 Team USA is still on top after 2 with a huge 90.681 over Russia, 89.187 @gymnastike
6:52 So that gives US 90.681. Russia with 89.197. @Nrarmour
6:51 And that why Gabby Douglas on US team. Toe-on full on into pirouette Tkatchev and connected immediately to Pak salto on low bar. Uh, huge. @nrarmour

6:35 Ponor just hit a nice set on beam for Romania. @USAGym
6:34 At Worlds ROM on Beam is usually money in the bank. Racea hit. But a bit rushed, I thought. @gymcoaching
