The way individuals qualify to nationals is complicated and difficult to understand. So we did the hard part for you and figured out which individuals are projected to advance based on Friday’s scores and Saturday’s team results.
Individual tie breakers look first at the average of all four judges’ scores, then at the head judges’ score on the event, then at NQS if things are still tied.
