Thanks for posting. Her bars is so nice. I wish she could add in another release or something bigger to up her D score. The transitions are beautiful. The only thing I don't like is she uses the one foot first method, much like B Caquatto does on her toe ons.

What did I miss? Why isn't Peng Peng on the Canadian World team?

I don't mind it as an interesting feature for one element, but not on every single toe-on. It looks sloppy.

Awesome Bhardwaj, though. I wish more gymnasts did that element.

Looks like she is on the team since her name appears on the team list: http://gymcan.org/site/news.php?id=369.

I think she was just missing from danafan's list above.

:confused:

I reread the team list I posted and Lee is there...

Sorry for the confusion, which I probably caused by calling her by her given name, Christine Lee, and not Peng Peng...

Ahh, that's it! I never knew her given name isn't Peng Peng :)

Wow. I wonder if Paul will lose his job at Ohio State over this?

If it is the first offense; I hope not because everyone deserves a second chance.

Importantly, Hamm was "arrested" not "convicted" ... maybe a "he said he said" stalemate when all is said and done?

Hamm is training for a possible 2012 Olympics slot? :wideeyes:

aw man... you can see video of some of Paul's drunken ramblings to the police officers here: http://www.10tv.com/content/stories/2011/09/07/columbus-Hamm-arrested.html

He even goes full-on Nancy Kerrigan! "Why? Why?"

:rofl: The video of Paul Hamm is absolutely hilarious. It sounds like Kerri Strug threatening to kill someone. LMAO! He sounds like a little kid and then at the end his drunk ass falls over and can't get back up. I don't feel sorry for him, it is just all too funny.

The list for the US World team will surely change. It almost always does but it is very interesting to see Li in there. Marta usually submits the top 6 AAers from Nationals or the top 5 and Sacramone but throwing Li on there is interesting. Maybe she will listen to me and many others and take Li. We need her POTENTIALLY big bars score and putting up anyone else on bars may not be any better, even if Li has some problems. Memmel apparently had a bad first camp, fell on beam during verification and did NO bars. Bars is tomorrow I think but maybe her shoulder was worse than we were lead to believe? Marta wont take someone with a bad shoulder, what if Memmel goes out mid routine in TF? We can't drop a score. I love Memmel and want her on the team more than anyone but I think she has done a good job for herself and can go home to rest up and upgrade for next year if she wants to keep trying for the Olympics. She came back on almost no notice and would have medaled at Nationals if she had finished her bar routine.

I love the bit at the end, when he just collapses in the backseat :rofl: Is his voice always that whiney, or is it just the booze?
