Don't know what to think about the "accepted" protest.

Can't bear to think about Matt Baker :wuzrobbed if GB get demoted to bronze. :yikes:

We have the bronze and the crowd are furious!!! We should be over the moon with the bronze but as we all thought we had the silver it is a little gutting. And so sad for Ukraine!!

Is Ukraine gonna protest now?

It seems like once you review one score you pretty much have set yourself up to have to review every score in the competition. I know that isn't how it works in reality - but it should. You can't tell me there weren't mistakes in at least some of the other scores if they've determined there was a mistake in this one.

Can someone explain the protest? I saw Uchimura's dismount, but what was the issue that resulted in the change?

Uchimara needed to go to a handstand to get credit for his dismount. The original call was that he did not get credit. Japan protested, on review of replay, they decided he did hit the handstand and that increased his score by 0.5.

That's too bad. I wanted a medal for Japan, but not this way.

Holy cow! I'm so happy. I really thought the Americans and Japanese would be fighting for gold with the Chinese having to fight for bronze with Russians and what not, but once again, the Chinese men bring it in the final. Respect :cool: :respec:

Huge kudos to China.

Gutted for Ukraine :(

If that dismount by Uchimura was credited so too should Belyavski's be credited. LOL

Gymnasts need to hit a handstand position during the dismount from PH in order to receive credit for the dismount. Uchi didn't receive credit for it and they protested.
