    OMG they are showing someone else (Tanaka), very briefly. Of course there is no context explaining where Tanaka is relative to the rest in the AA field.

    Now Uchimura on HB.

    How can Leyva have to climb over 3 gymnasts when there are only 2 gymnasts left in the competition now that Orosco's been eliminated?

    I was discussing the gymnastics event with someone who would be NBC's target demographic: not a hard core fan, just likes to tune in for the Olympics. He was seriously confused with the stupid traffic signal scoring so it's not like that's only a fail for us hard core types.

    I just love how NBC's only way of showing international gymnasts is to show how they screwed up to give an American a medal!!!

    And John had a very good competition after the PH. I wanted to see him redeem himself.
    Creating drama!

    Men's gymnastics has been a mess so far this Olympics. Hopefully event finals will be cleaner.

    Don't you know, the Americans and American MEDALS are all that matter.

    This coverage is beyond tragic. Shame on NBC.

    This whole comeback angle might have been more dramatic if they'd actually given a sense of how far behind Leyva was. Like, oh, at least maybe flash some standings?

    And yeah I wanted to see Orosco on the events where he did better too.

    There were a number of good routines. They're just not being shown.

    I saw Orosco in the background a bit ago. I'm so confused. I thought he was eliminated. Well, it's nice that they allow the eliminated gymnasts to stay in the arena. Along with the people who do stuff on rings.

    I watched it live. There's been good moments but everyone seems to want to give the judges a reason to give a medal to someone else.

    Are you kidding me- it seems like they aren't even going to show the mens gymnastics medal ceremony. Nice.

    I was thinking the exact same thing!

    He came from behind to win as a result of an error.
