Poor Aliya. It's not her fault she fell. She was lulled to sleep by the floor music. That was tiring. (Apparently HisWeirness and I do not agree)

Do you really pronounce Aliya's last name with a short "i" sound? I'd love to see it in Cyrillic because that doesn't sound right to me.

I actually just chugged when Tim said "control your own destiny" just like in the old days with Terry Gannon!

Oh thats right - next time I need to open a jar of pickles I'm grabbing Komova's toes. Mmmm, gymnast toes on my food. :swoon: Start saying smart things, Tim.

They're also showing less swimming--I'm wondering if they got some feedback.
.


I complained about 3 times on NBC Olympics facebook page about the five million swim races that were shown last night.

Well I hope they don't stop showing them for you. I love swimming and would be totally pissed if they didn't show every race.

:(:(:( Mustafina. I was really hoping for a clean beam routine from her (prefer her to Komova).

Musty's father is Tatar.

They probably do have a slightly different pronounciation.

Sorry, trying not to fall asleep like I did last night.

Komova? Or Mustafina?

Komova did a decent BB, but again on second viewing, she had at least three balance checks, two of which were pretty big -- IMO she was a bit overscored on this apparatus.

Mustafina was a trainwreck on Beam :(. Once she came off doing the Arabian, she seemed to lose all motivation and just gave up instead of fighting for it. She also went over time, which was an additional deduction.

How many times does Mustafina's coach have to be swatted away by her in competitions? No comforting!

I wasn't the only one complaining last night, there were a lot of complaints.

ITA, you are not alone. Swimming is one of the marquee sports of the Olympics, not thinking they're going to listen anytime soon.
