I don't have any reports yet :( but maybe some of you do and I thought it would be better to put it in the Olympics forum and not in the general gymnastics thread.

Pena landed a Produnova, yay! Elsa Garcia dismounting on beam with a patterson. Yay. Sounds like Lauren Mitchell is having some difficulty on floor. Here is a video of her on floor training prior to today http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taWxi7XSqkA

Iordache. Nothing we don't already know. She might miss the competition.

Hope this is not true about Iordache.

Guess I'm the only one who sees the words "podium training" and wonders why the gymnasts need to practice receiving their medals. :slinkaway

I used to think that back in the day. Thing is, at the time, I could actually imagine Khorkina doing such a thing :glamor:

In this article it says that the decision to compete or not is up to Larisa:

The decision to compete or cancel the competition for the Olympic Games will belong to Larisa, no gymnast who could have obtained at least a medal in singles, a possible lack of it will be especially felt in the team competition
google translate therefore the sentence is a bit weird.

This Olympics has an injury prone feel to it, sending best of luck to the girls today! I really hope McKayla can still vault like she usually does.

Sounds like Italy has some great work in store, and Vasiliki Malousi's mount of RO-layout step out into needle scale sounds :swoon: worthy. :kickass:

Poor Larissa... I think part of the problem of her pushing through is how much is expected of her.. THAT may be too much.

:fragile: I'm gutted for her. Also gutted for us fans. :fragile:

Clearly "In a minute" does not mean the same to me or Blythe. :mad: (she wrote she would provide a link to the third subdivison "in a minute" )
Is it not starting yet? When does it start? Why is there no video feed. :wuzrobbed

^I believe the next group (US/GB etc.) starts at 2:45pm our time - meaning in about forty minutes.
