Speak for yourself. I whine about it every four years, and everytime I remember to watch Gym worlds.

I would whine less if someone--anyone--could give me a coherent reason as to why this is in place. If it's to spread the medal count, it's a fail. The powerhouse countries today--Russia, USA, China, Romania--are exactly the same as they were 20 years ago. Maybe even more dominant.

Especially since the athletes who get in because of the two per country rule rarely medal. So...no point to it in my view.

I don't really believe in "spreading the wealth." Let them earn it.

I remember it from 1992.

It was instated in 2003.

I'd love for Musty to be the new Khorky.

She should totally slap Paseka if she falls on that Amanar in TF.

3 per country bugged me, but I could understand the rationale. 2 per country just seems too limiting. And I don't care about the American gymnasts at all, so it's not because it impacts me personally.

That "diva Mustafina" profile was the least coherent fluff piece I've seen in a long time. Really NBC? What a waste of time and an incredible disservice to a great gymnast.

I have a feeling I am going to be as sick of hearing "Jordyn Wieber" on NBC as I am of "Michael Phelps". :shuffle:

Can't have a fluff piece without busting on the Russians somehow.

Remember that awesome Plushy piece from Vancouver? :rofl:

I think "Be a Diva" should be the Russian national slogan.
