Geddert is such an embarrassment with what he tweets. He has acted very petty since Jordyn missed qualifying for the AA. I hope he learns how to act like a professional by observing how Chow, Jenny, and Mihai have conducted themselves, but it is probably a little late for that.

Well.. he IS embarrassing. Dear me :yikes:His tweet from last night is only the most recent example of his being an embarrassing tool. The night of the team final, I was alternately :rolleyes: and :mad: by his making sure that he was in nearly every camera shot after the results were official, including getting in the team huddle and then when they were taking pictures. moving from the initial lineup, where all the coaches were flanking the girls on each side, to dead center between Gabby and Jordyn. I'm surprised he didn't try to get up on the podium too. :rolleyes: Despite all his maneuvering, I was happy to not be able to find a single picture of the OGM ladies with his face in it. :P

And I'll be there! :cheer:

Rest assured I'll be hiding behind my seat when Sui Lu mounts the beam and Queen Ksenia begins floor.

:drama:

Jenny is Kyla Ross' coach? Whomever the lady was on the floor during TF and qualies was just lovely.

Yes that's Jenny. :) she's always in the background so I had no clue how she was until this Olympics. We couldn't have had a better female coach on the floor if the entire team were coached by female coaches. Oh and Geddert also made sure to point out Jenny was the other head coach by default because she's the only female once the news came out. I think lots of parents will be impressed with how Jenny handled her position and how she interacts with the athletes. I hope they get more business than they know what to do with!

And Izbasa is up last again on floor. She's been lucky.

I hope the judges don't hold back on scoring Sui and Afan. I know they used to do that in the 10.0 scoring system. I don't know if that's still the case.

Ksenia as a double medalist would be awesome! And not completely out of the question.

I just saw Chile didn't win any medals at these Olympics yet, so this makes Mustache man's near miss on VT even more :wall:. At least Ukraine moved up from 4th place as a result, though!

Wasn't Chilean gymnast man 4th on floor too? :(

I'm not even bothered if Ksenia doesn't win gold - bit of a long shot, even on floor. I just want an individual medal for her.

He was, but at least that was a distant fourth. Top 3 were really in a class of their own in the final. There's a very nice article about him planning to to a tour in Chile once he gets back home to try and take advantage of the current gym 'boom'. And, he also mentions that continuing seems easier now that he gets more recognition, so hopefully he sticks around & at least wins a medal at Worlds :cheer2:.

So relieved Beth got a bronze! I was so nervous for her I couldn't watch. Shame it's not gold, but man did she earn that medal. I like Mustafina too so I'm happy for her.

4 gymnastics medals for team GB - really not that bad, eh?

^^ No, that is super good for them! Especially since I don't think a GBR woman has won an Olympic medal before, right? I think Tweds is the first. :)
