:cheer2::cheer2::cheer2: for Beth! She deserves it! She's worked so hard. What an unbelieveable Olympics for Team GB! Four medals in Artistic Gymnastics and then there's my new husband coming up in Vault. Kristian Thomas. My vote for hottest gymnast of the games. :swoon:

ETA - it will be interesting to see what happens on beam. Has there ever been an AA champ that hasn't won at least one EF medal?

Shushunova didn't win any EF. Boginskaya was vault champ, and Silivas won the other three EF.

And of course, Nastia. And Tatiana Gutsu. Apparently it's not that uncommon.

Great result! Congrats Alya, and glad for Beth Tweddle - home crowd, long career! Am happy for Sandra Izbasa, too, for her second individual olympic gold medal!
And He Kexin! Congrats!

But Shushonova probably medaled right?

Wheeeeeeee now that's what I'm talking about! Mustafina a gold medalist! Tweddle with a medal!

Impressive comeback from Kexin after all the age questioning and terrible 2011 - no doubt she's old enough now. :EVILLE:

Thrilled for Aliya! After everything she fought through to get here, she gets to be an Olympic Champion! Can't wait to see those bars.

So happy for Beth to get a Medal. She said coming in that she didn't care what color the medal was so there's no way she'll be disppointed with this although I'm sure she'll wish she'd stuck the landing.


Nervous for Sam!

I would have given Tweddle the silver. Kexin's bar work is not good quality anymore, all those ugly dead hangs, all she has is difficulty. Still good for her hitting all her bar sets after her problems the last couple years. Very happy to see Mustafina win and Tweddle medal.

I meant a medal of any colour. Most AA champs haven't won EF gold - it's actually harder to find one that has won both AA gold and EF gold. I think the only one in recent history who has is Pod. But I think they've all won some kind of medal in EFs - Nastia had 2 silvers and a bronze, Carly had silver on beam, Gutsu had a silver & a bronze, etc.

Aww, I wanted Beth Twiddle to take this; but, I'm happy for Mustafina. I hope Gabby and Komova can bounce back tomorrow.

:( for Komova though. Really really hoping she kills beam.

Gutsu didn't win any EF's either in 1992. Second on bars and en-masse tie for third on FX. Lol, never mind, saw the edit too late :O:

Yay Beth! shame about the dismount but she went for it and finally has an Olympic medal that she so deserves. She was totally robbed in Beijing IMO. And wheeeee Musty is an Olympic champion. Sooooo happy for her.
