Gerber should have had gold, IMHO. The fact that Lago outscored Gerber in EXECUTION when Lago had a huge mistake on her last pass is a joke. The difference was .025; you really don't think there was some Mexican favoritism in the scoring. Oh well. :p

I have to agree, today Ana Lago hit her first tumbling passes but landed very low almost touching with her hands the double pike, though she disguised a bit with some choreo movements but it was evident that it was a mistake and a low landing

Still the judges gave her 13.800. Gerber didnt have a major error, but was very penalized on the execution score, legs coming apart, some break forms tha costed her many points, but I was very confused when her score was shown and she got second place

Itīs not Ana Lagoīs fault, overall the judging was īokī but of all the medals that the mexican girls won, this gold is the one disputed

Also there was a bit of controversy on the beam final, Hypolito taking bronze with a fall, ahead of a clean Karla Salazar of Mexico, who did not have mayor errors but low D Score, still with the fall but the brazilian girl beat her

But you canīt question any of the two golds from Daniel Corral who was simply the best in the field on both Pommel Horse and Parallel Bars

I hope he can recover and be in top form for January and go to the Olympic Qualifying Event, he really deserves a shot at the Games and maybe an individual final, he could be a very competitive specialist

Honorable mention to Canada getting silver on floor - nice to see Gerber's FX rewarded!

Is Mikaela Gerber any relation to Aisha Gerber who competed for Canada a few years ago?

She will be a "webcamgirl". Guys will ask her to "perform acts" for which they pay her.
"There are other aspects I'd like to show of myself, other than just as an athlete."

My god, she LITERALLY means this. :scream:

Someone ought to tell her that there some "aspects" that are best kept between her and a very, very chosen few, and then one at a time, both literally and figuratively. :yikes: :scream:

Maybe she never got to wear any super high-cut leotards like Catalina Ponor, and all that repressed resentment and rage is now coming out in full force.

In all seriousness though, I can't think of anything that is more demeaning than being a webcam girl. Ew. :scream:

The gymnastics judges don't always watch before they judge, why should we? :lol:

She probably won't be allowed to coach, what with her connections to a child porn case, and now this.
