    So happy for Sazaki! :cheer2:
    And yay for Arthur Nory :)
    Who would have thought that Brazil would get an "almost medal" and a second guy in the all around at MAG.

    The ladies on the other hand :(

    Sam Mikulak broke my heart in high bar :(

    But still showing a charming smile and good sportmanship congratulating the medal winers, your time will come Sam!!!

    And happy the bronze medal end with Hambuechen, the guy has gone through so many lows, injuries, surgeries and to take this medal must mean the world for him

    Uchimura is the MASTER, period.

    Uchida is still on the recovery from his injury so it was hard for him to keep the forth title in a row. Well done!!

    The look on Fabien's face was priceless. After all the hugs and congratulations, he turned away for a moment and you could see him let out this sigh of relief. Yay for him!

    One reason I love men's gymnastics is that most of them genuinely look so happy for each other at the end of the individual events regardless of nationality.

    What is the rule here? I get the 30-seconds thing, but even the Universal Sports commentator said that he would be given the opportunity to start over since it "wasn't his fault" that the grip broke. They never came back to clarify.

    Me too. I think its the maturity level. The other thing I really love is the depth across countries.

    Iordache actually had a decent UB routine, the battle for the podium will be interesting :D

    Jinnan's coach must have to train with a helmet.

    I watched her beam from qualifications and she's lovely! Liked the Swiss gymnast too, can't remember her name now.

    Moors got a good score on floor but I didn't see it. Anyone know if she landed the double double?

    Hoping Kyla can get enough of a margin with that to at least have a chance with floor up.

    Well its basically a tie going into floor between Ross and Biles. Biles should have this unless she pulls a Bross and face plants.

    Ross is in the lead going into the last rotation. Does she have enough difficulty to overcome Biles on floor?

    Was that Biles screeching during Ross' beam? The voice :scream:

    Ferrari's shoulder cut out leo :scream:

    Brazilian commentator cannot accept that the chinese girls are over 12 years old :lol:

    Biles, Ross and Mustafina doing great so far :)

    Don't have the exact scores, but it's Ross, Biles, Mustafina, Yao and Iordache, in that order.

    According to the quick hits on the FIG page, yes she did. :cheer2:

    What a close competition going into the last rotation. Biles will probably take it since she has consistently scored better than Kyla on floor, but I'm impressed it's this close.

    Thank you guys....those are close scores. I forgot to ask what rotation. Sounds like 3rd or 4th if top girls competed beam.

    My gawd, Musty's legs on all her twisting passes are as fug as H-double hockey sticks.
