Komova into 2nd.

Ugh I wish someone could beat Tan. I know she killed it, but her routine is just so ugly, choreo wise.

08-22-2010, 01:59 PM
Komova just looks knackered :(

Gawd just STFU you dumbass commentators! They did not pause for breath all through Bulimar's routine. Much better than the AA from her.

Komova just looks knackered :(

I agree; I bet she's just exhausted. She was error free for the qualification & AA, and maybe it's just too much for her at this point.

For some reason, I thought of Shawn Johnson at 07 Worlds where she won the AA and then bombed her beam. Just tired.

Awww, nice birthday for Bulimar to get silver! :cheer:
I liked her FX.

"Uneven beam" for the second time today; STFU you assholes.

Do any of these junior guys do anything impressive on HB? I don't know if I can sit through these commentators anymore.

Gutted for Sam Oldham. He's having a nightmare meet... The expectations were obviously too much for him to handle.

08-22-2010, 02:21 PM
Hennessy goes well with French????? Is this commentator guy completely off his tits on something? :rofl:

Sam Oldham finally nails a routine in event finals although all the skills were wrongly identified :rolleyes:

I also learned today that Singapore is a real powerhouse in women's gymnastics. :lol: (From the context, they clearly meant Romania, but didn't bother to correct themselves or seem to even realize they made a mistake, as happened numerous times today alone. :lol:)

Marcia Frederick 1978 Worlds EF Bars (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRdIvk_edaw)

Old news. Marcia Frederick, for the first time, placed 1st in a World Championship Event Final.

She was on the 1980 Olympic Team that did not compete.

Chinese Nationals report:


"World and Olympic champion He Kexin missed several handstands to score 14.650 on uneven bars, but competed all four events to place seventh. "

Perhaps its time for us to stop freaking out about the HUGE US deficit on bars. Not to say she can't improve...but I wonder if bars isn't quite the slam dunk for China that it used to be...

Interesting about He Kexin! Sounds like a rare miss for her.

I realise that few on this thread seem interested in what's going on in the GB team but there's a friendly GB v Switzerland this week-end and GB are entering 2 teams, using this as a selection event for the commentwealth and world teams.

For once, there's real depth and suspense as to who will be chosen:
