Men never did have music. The women used to have someone playing piano - live. I don't remember if it was always the same piece or not. I don't think the gymnast got any say in what was played, but I could be wrong. Then they changed so the gymnast could choose their own recorded music. We could always go back to that - not.
They had the same piano music for compulsories, but got to choose their own piano floor music for optionals. I'll never forget Korbut's Alley Cat (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJXXGyVly_g) because my mum made me practice that song on piano for HOURS.

Nadia's 1976 FX (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y87BO6tnB08&feature=related) with that signature ending pose.

The only really legitimate sex-based differences between MAG and WAG are not letting the women do roll-out skills, and maybe still rings, maybe.

Just out of curiosity, what is the legitimate difference you're talking about wrt roll-out skills?

I see we're pretending that lane 8 is an advantage?

:lol:

Couldnīt watch this live and even knowing what happens is still great to have the chance (thank you pirate NBC)

Dear god, it's insane how dominant this performance was from Ryan. He was leading after the opening lap in his WORST stroke.

The most shocking thing to me about this race is that Michael lost the medal in this race in the free.

it looks like Michael just didn't have the stamina to finish the race. I love how Rowdy has been going back and forth in his support of Michael. :rolleyes:

PML Lochte had time to take a nap before the rest of the boys made the wall. Go Gators. One of my fb friends is from Florida and they're all a little nuts after this event.
