Cottbus 2009

The tournament of masters in Cottbus will take place on 20-22 March. The entries for the Women's Competition only includes 32 participants with Romania, Russia, Great Briatain and France among others not sending anyone. Particpants of interest include Hu Yuhong and Sui Lu of China. Sui Lu has a difficult beam routine including a barani, front pike and double pike dismount and a very nice floor routine with a back 2 and 1/2 twist into front layout with full twist.

Representing Brazil will be Bruna Leal and Ethiene Franco and for Belgium Jolien Eggermont and Aagje Vanwalleghem. Jolien has a very expressive floor routine with good tumbling.

The Netherlands team will be Wyomi Masela and Lieke Wevers. Lieke is Sanne Wevers twin sister and has strong routines on bars and beam and an elegant floor routine. Like her sister she has difficult turns on beam. This is her bars routine from the recent Dutch Euro Trials even though she fell she has potential to score highly and I hope she gets into the final this weekend.

UPDATE: Lieke Wevers has been selected to the Netherlands Team for the Europeans in April along with Wyomi Masela, Marya Kroonen and Marrit Ewald.
