When had Russia's team been announced? The last I heard they had 10 on the training squad, but since then I hadn't heard any news of narrowing it down to six.

Russia and Brazil have yet to annouce their final tentative teams. China's women's will be announced on Friday as per an International Gymnast article.

Also, the Vietnamese gymnast's name is Thuong Di Thi Ngan, not just Do Thi Ngan.
