I'd rather have a flawed Karpenko win an AA over a boring, consistent Gogean.

^ Word. :)

Have finally seen all the routines, emotionally when you watch the comp from start to finish and get absorbed in the back and forth nature of it, I was completely flabbergasted that Jordyn won and was :wuzrobbed seeing Komova crumble like that when she realized she ended up 2nd. (also very :wuzrobbed at how genuinely happy Jordyn was that she won, I love emotional reactions like that).

When you compare routines though, Jordyn really was the best on 3 of the 4, so when you look at it in that context then she was a legit winner IMO. Speaking of her, she's really grown on me this year, she makes her style work and she's so not a robot anymore. It's creeped up on me all year how far she's come since I :scream: at her 2009 American Cup win.

Mustafina would've wiped the floor with both of them though, even with a DTY. I really miss her. Next year could be one of the most amazing years we've ever seen in gymnastics. I hope it's another 1992, 1996 type of Olympics that is great from start to finish. We deserve one after 2 1/2 of the last 3 Olympics sucking!

LOL. Sigh. Karpenko was lovely. I just cannot watch her Sydney AA FX. She literally fell over her big toe. :(

TELL ME ABOUT IT D: It's criminal she didn't medal in anything in 2000.

^Ugh, don't even say it! In fact, everything about Sydney - apart from the lovely Liu Xuan winning beam - is pretty much erased from my memory.

That one floor routine could've changed the way I looked at that whole Olympics. She tripped over her own foot. :( I blame her bangs - they weren't as poofy as usual that day and it messed up her gravitational pull.

^Yes. It's my philosophy for most things which go tits-up - "If in doubt, blame bangs!" (Upon reflection, it feels a bit wrong for me to say bangs ... I'm not American. I'm gonna go with fringe)

I'm off out soon, for daytime drinking ( :P :D) but I 'll just shout out good luck to Kohei Uchimura and Philipp Boy. Ideally for me, BOTH will medal later today. They've both been falling all over the place at these champs so far, so I hope they can pull it together today. Good luck boys!

Orozco 15.866 on Vault = 58.932 Uchimura Yurchenko 2 1/2 (stuck, tiny feet adjustment).16.233 = 62.365 Boy 16.066 = 59.898 Purvis 16.000 = 59.932 Yammamuro - Yamamuro VT - waits until almost the last minute to go. Kaz 2/1, largish step across his body. 16.066 = 60.432 Leyva 14.800 = 58.407 Belyavskiy on HB 14.600 = 59.808

After 4 rotations: 1. UCHIMURA 62.365 2. Yammamuro 60.432 3. PURVIS 59.932 4. BOY 59.898 5. Belyavskiy 59.808 10. Orozco 58.932 13. Levya 58.407

Uchimura could do what he did in Team Final on High Bar and still win. *fingers cross* for Purvis. Though I like the top 5 at moment. US will be very disappointed.

Uchimura continues to excel (from AA Twitter - Uchimura PB - peach1/2 - peach, giant, uprise double back, giant double pike, double tuck, gienger, straddle front 1 1/4, double pike with a tiny hop. 15.566 = 77.931 Boy - 14.566 = 74.464. Tommasone 15.400 on PH = 74.232

Great Parallel Bars from Purvis 15.200 = 75.132 Yamamuro 14.966 on PB = 75.389 Kusenkov 15.2 on High Bar = 74.766. Belyavskiy 14.733 on Floor = 74.541. Leyva 15.333 on PB. Sadly a bit late unless people implode on final apparatus. = 73.740 Orozco 15.366 = 74.298.

1. UCHIMURA 77.931 2. YANAMURO 75.389 3. PURVIS 75.132 4. Kusenkov 74.766 5. Belyavskiy 14.733 6. Boy 74.566 7. Orozco 74.298 9 LEVYA 73.740

Yes sounds horrible :(

The only one that could break Uchimura, Boy and Yamamuro is Kusenkov who is on floor. His floor was 14.366 for total of 89.132. Orozco 15.366 total 89.664 for top 5 finish. Pity he made earlier mistakes.

And magnificent Kohei Uchimura scores 15.700 on High Bar for 93.631 total.

1. UCHIMURA 93.631 2. BOY 90.530 3. YAMAMURO 90.255 4. PURVIS 89.932 5. OROZCO 89.664 6. BELYAVSKIY 89.274 7. KUSENKOV 89.132 8. NGUYEN 88.831 9. TOMMASONE 88.565 10= MARTINEZ, KIM 88.089
