Uchimura's coaches are heading to the technical table. Twitter folks think they may be protesting the score. Not sure what's going on but I'll keep anyone who's awake and following this with me informed if I see anything. :P

I'm here and appreciating your reports, although I'm not sure for how long... :yawn:

Uchimura's team protesting his D score. Revised to a 6.5 so .2 up and into the lead. Zou Kai 15.5

Uchimura's score just got bumped up 0.2... must have had some inquiry or something.

Speculation is they scored the first pass wrong for Uchimura which is why they're talking to the technical panel right now. Still waiting for word on if they're going to do anything.

Score was changed to 15.633 for Uchimura (they did mess up calling his first pass)

Kai 15.50 (which knocks Legendre out of the medals and annoys me because this guy isn't that good :blah: )

Shatilov :grope:

I don't give a flying squirrel poo about the inquiry (his opening looked like a triple double, not double double, guessing thats what it was?), ANYBODY but Zhou Kai.

Nice to see Hypolito tie for 3rd, overall a good final but I'd have had Zhou Kai 5th.

C'mon McKayla!! :cheer2: :cheer: :cheer2: Love her leo :swoon:

Apparently Shatilov and Hypolito get Olympic births with their medal wins today. Can't wait to see this final tomorrow night! It sounds insanely awesome. No misses! :eek:

Why aren't larger countries like Uchimura for Japan and Kai for China and very likely Maroney for USA not given a spot for Olympics like minor countries? In my opinion athletes that medal in any Event Final should be given an automatic spot into Qualifying at Olympics. That way the big countries could qualify spots where they may have specialists but not necessarily have that person be in the five-person team.
