    mckayla was amazing. Where did the deduction come from?

    It seems crazy to bring someone to the Olympics to do nothing but vault, but man she earned it. It will be a travesty if she doesn't win the EF.

    I'll never tire of watching McKayla's vault. That was perfection. Maybe slightly, slightly off center in the air, but I definitely think the score could have been higher.

    ETA: Even Aliya's hair was sparkly, if my eyes do not deceive me! Dedication.

    Beautiful vault from Mustafina. And now we get "no bangs" Komova.

    That really was an absolutely beautiful DTY from Mustafina.

    Is the way Tim and Elfie say Mustafina actually right?

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Oh boy, wonder if the Russians are wishing they'd chosen someone other than Paeska?

    Poor Paseka; to the gulags for her. She will have to give back her diva crown.

    Did Al Trautwig seriously say that we are going to start seeing more difficulty and wondering why it ISN'T REWARDED?

    Oh goodness. This Russian girl is lucky she didn't twist her ankle slipping off the mats entirely. It seems like that deduction should be higher. I know it wasn't a fall, but a huge mistake.

    Wow Paseka's vault was really overscored - her knee brushed the mat. That landing should have been .8 (the max you can take for a landing fault without a fall).
