Ah Tim, waxing philosophical with "a crowded room can be so lonely"

And Ali leaving that element out of the first tumbling pass which was a great idea she did in the team event because she kept stumbling out of bounds, was not a good idea here in the individual AA.

How can anyone be as composed as Gabby is in this situation. She really does believe in herself. Look at that smile. Dancing, having fun. And some knock em out elements. Aw!

It's really shocking. Gabby was a MESS a year ago at Visa's. She looked like not even making the team. Even at Visa's and Trials, she looked like she was going to be good for at least a few big mistakes at the Olympics. But if you'd have told me at Visa's in 2011 that she would be so poised and confident barely a year later, never mind one of the best AA gymnasts in the world, I'd have thought you were out of your mind.

Exactly. Maybe Sochi will be better? Doubt it, but we can hope!

It might be. Winter Olympics are not as popular and we don't do as well as Summer. I usually find the Winter Olys to have better overall coverage. I remember screaming the exact opposite--show skating! No one cares about these stupid other sports!

My dad just claimed Mustafina "was the best gymnast here." I think in DadSpeak that means: she has the most unique features, and I remember seeing her once before. More quotes: "You can't beat those Russians. They're just better. The Russkies are just better at gym. It's all that Communism." I'm waiting for my mom to backhand him, but she's ignoring instead.

She got a 15.3 in the team final so it probably seemed like a good idea to leave it out when she had gotten that score for the watered down version. And this one really did look the same as the 15.3 version.

Vika's floor was the best gymnastics routine in the AA for me. Even better than Musty's bars.

:cheer2: :cheer:

Komova is beautifully flexible, very elegant in her moves, but the music is horrendous, 12 points off for that.

The routine was lovely but connected in no way with the music.

Poor Vika. :wuzrobbed

All I want is for her to win beam or bars. I won't even complain about Afan not getting her due on floor if that happens.

Aw, love the hug between Aly and Gabby.

And Aly and Chow. I'd love for Aly to go into coaching. I think she'd be fab. She could team up with Komova and Komova could teach form and Aly could teach mental toughness and not giving up.


Komova was FABULOUS! Her gymnastics really are beautiful to watch. But her tendency to give up has always made it hard for me to warm up to her.

Stupid IOC. Both Aly and Aliya should've gotten medals.

ETA It's mean, but I liked the side-eye Mustafina gave Komova.
