Wow. Gorgeous routine by Sui. If she doesn't go ahead of Yao, I'll be shocked.

Sui Lu's routine was almost Yang Bo-dacious!!! (to quote Dwight Normile)

Wheee P Bars next! Another chance for Uchimura to be a rock star. And Leyva gets a chance at a medal on his best event. I just can't believe how deep all the men's event finals are, its crazy.

Now I REALLY want Aly to win a medal on FX! She's finished fourth twice now and that has to be a little disappointing for her. Go get them on floor Aly!!! :cheer:

And with that I need to get some sleep. Talk to you all tomorrow! :)

Jinnan and Sui are so lovely to watch. I loved Weiber's mental ability too as she looked like she was going down the Komova route when she didn't.

I'm frightened of Komova's mental ability and wonder whether its that which hurts her in London.

The Korean fella looks like he's really fighting to hold his emotions on the podium. Cute guy.

Anton Golotsutskov always medals but not a win. He is still the most consistent medal getter.

Komova still stayed on her feet in the All Around so I think she's an inbetween mentally. Sui Lu was taken off the Olympic team because she was widly inconsistent and messed up on beam for two years straight and look where she's at now!
