Did Chile ever medal in gymnastics before?


I don't think so. It would be huge for them.

I read somewhere that Gonzalez is the first (men's?) gymnast to represent Chile at the Olympics, ever.

There were some great vaults in that final! :cheer2:

I feel bad saying this as a Brit, but SO HAPPY FOR MUSTAFINA :cheer: :cheer2:

I'm also thrilled Beth has an Olympic medal to her name, and good for He Kexin! They should all be so proud! Off to watch it now :watch:

Oh, and a gold for Brazil! This half-Brazilian is happy! :D

I wasn't able to watch, but saw a news article that Gabby missed a medal.

Did she finish 8th because she blew it, or because that is just where she ranks?

She had a mistake on her toe shoot full but she didn't fall.

Her D score was 6.6 in qualifying and 6.3 now, so she did lose some bonus.

So very happy that Beth got a medal! :cheer2:

And well done to Sam for standing up and not landing his butt on the mat on the 2nd vault!

But she should not have medalled anyway. 15.9 for Douglas would have been a travesty even if she hit.

So happy for Mustafina. :cheer:

But, Komova :wuzrobbed This isn't the first time she's hit her feet on the bars. I hope they can get that sorted out so it doesn't keep happening.

I think Gabby knew coming in she wasn't in the medal hunt. See below.

Some nice quotes from Beth, Aliya and Gabby :
