Czechs nab important 24th spot in 11th subdivision

DOHA: The Czech Republic earned the top team score in the 11th and last subdivision of women’s qualifications at Aspire Dome on Sunday, but their 24th-place overall team ranking
was far more significant.

The top 24 teams at the Doha Worlds will advance to the 2019 Worlds in Stuttgart, which in turn will move them closer to qualification for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
Aneta Holasova provided the Czechs with their highest scores on three of four apparatus.

The Czech Republic’s team total score of 147.996 points was more than enough to bump Egypt, which competed in earlier subdivision, out of the all-important 24th spot.

Greece finished second in the subdivision and 26th overall.
