2011 AT&T American Cup Champions: Jonathan Horton and Jordyn Wieber Jordyn had a fall on the uneven bars on her Tkatchev (reverse hecht), slipping off the bar after catching the release move. But she came back strong on beam and floor. Russia's Aliya Mustafina had a fall on floor, opening the door, with the competition ending with less than a tenth in score between them. Jonathan had 6 good routines, a little sloppy here and there...he took out one move from the high bar because he was too tired to do it, and won the gold. Jonathan said he was about at 85% readiness, due to breaking his finger 2 months ago, and was only in full training about 2 and a half weeks.

Russia's Aliya Mustafina had great routines. She went for her full difficulty on her floor routine even though her coach Alexander Alexandrov wanted her to do an 'easy' floor routine, in another words water down some skills as she had such a big lead from the three other events - but she replied she was going to do it all. Aliya opened floor with an awesome 3.5 twist followed with a tucked double arabian. But like USA's Rebecca Bross at the 2009 Worlds, she under-rotated her 2.5 twist and couldn't punch out her barani, falling with her hands touching down too. Very close standings. A good starting competition for the season. Worlds 2011 will be lots of high difficulty skills.
