From the Australian Pay TV Provider Foxtel's coverage. With featured commentary by Liz Chetkovich and Mark Reading. Am slowly working my way through typing up my notes, unfortunately I missed out on the Men's Team Final.

SUBDIVISION ONE:
I love how the stadium starts off in darkness with the Judges and Competitors marching out. Liz said she's got mixed feelings on the upcoming second subdivision and seeing the Australians compete. So lovely to see the gymnasts backstage if you like. Love the atmosphere especially seeing as their is three groups of mixed competitors. Pictures don't capture how sparkly some of these leotards are! See Seon Mi Heo and Maria Homolova.
