    Martha may think Gabby will be stronger if she doesn't have to lead off.

    Anna Li has torn a ligament in her neck and is no longer training as an alternate.

    On twitter it also looked like they went through twice starting with Jordyn and Aly. Not that I don't trust you, just that that's how it read. As far as the wobbles, just reporting what is on twitter. Like I said, I can't watch at work. And she did fall the second time through.

    Looked to me like Jordyn and Aly went first, FWIW.

    Into NBCOlympics? It's supposed to validate based on your internet connection if you have the right cable package.

    Maroney not doing floor.

    Sounds like they may have gone an extra time?

    From Blythe:

    Ah, yes, this is very Romanian: Ross is in the air dismounting, Douglas is putting her hands on the beam to mount.
    Has she never been to a gymnastics meet before? This happens all the time everywhere when they have limited warmup/training time, especially in NCAA.

    I admit, I am a little sad that Maroney wont be doing FX just because I wanted her to really hit it and give herself a shot at another EF but I honestly want her to win vault gold more than the US to win team gold.

    I promise, I watched them lineup and salute at beam. Ross immediately jumped on then was followed by Douglas, Wieber, and Raisman in that order. They then did full runthroughs in that same order.

    I think Maroney for vault gold is the only thing that all of FSU (everyone who cares, at any rate) has ever agreed on.

    Very solid tumbling for Kyla and apparently Beth Twwedle looked great on bars.

    Is anyone else who is watching on NBCOlympics getting a lot of pauses in the video feed? (where the circle of dots goes round and round like it's loading?) I usually get clean feeds on this computer (aka Icenetwork or Universalsports) so wondering if its something on my end or if others are seeing this too?

    I guess podium training is for veiwers as well as gymnasts! Making sure we are ready!

    It really doesn't matter, everyone knows that Gabby isn't going last. You asked how Loves_Shizuka got that order on floor so others were confirming they saw the same thing.

    Did Wieber doing a 3turn on floor? Has she always? I saw it at the last second. Stuck her first 2 passes.

    Sounds like the US looked great on floor!

    Yes, according to twitter, Jordyn did a triple turn. Can't remember if she always has.

    Aly not her usual self on floor, only a front tuck out of her first pass and a little short on the double arabian pike. She did nail her double pike split jump with a big rebound, though.

    Ur. Really?

    Apparently a rough run through for Aly but her tumbling looked good in Warmup.
