    I hope judges get their Sh!t sorted for the future, worst possible competition to have all this going on.

    The BBC commentator had wonderful superlatives for all the gymnasts and then she gets to Raisman and the best she could come up with was "punchy." Bless her.

    I'd like to see Sui, Sandra or Afan win... I'd like that to be the podium too; Raisman has her medal and I think all three are the more complete floor exercise packages.

    Oh, you are right. This is sad for Diana. Of course it is a lot of "what if" and it is likely that she would have wobbled as well but giving up a place to a medallist is surely easier than to a sixth place finisher...

    Congratulations to the Medalists on Balance Beam: Deng Linlin, Sui Lu, and and Aly Raisman

    Ponor is one of my favorite gymnasts on BB, and I was hoping she would medal, but her performance today was crap and in no way was deserving of a medal.
    Gun Control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to buy cars.

    There is something appealing about always hitting and I really like that she IS a robot, not kind of a robot, not a potentially graceful but unfortunately Robotic gymnast. She is the EPITOME of a robot, so don't hate, Terminate!

    Is Lu Sui crying because she ended up with silver?
    Yes. She wanted to be the winner and can't deal with losing to her teammate. How non American of her.


    Porno looks like she's had some hard living in the past 8 years.....


    Ponor looks like she has a 40 year old's head photoshopped on a porn stars body. She's still though.


    Romania 1 & 3 on floor please with Ponor giving it filth to 'Fever'.

    I feel kinda bad for Lu, especially considering I did enjoy her set more, but she really needs to get a grip That was embarrassing.

    I know what fighting means. But Aliya's beam and floor were subpar and she made many mistakes that certain people might consider "not fighting". I say this as a huge Musty fan, by the way.

    I haven't seen the event finals today so I cannot comment on what happened on beam. However, I think people, including myself, are extremely hard on Komova because of her potential.

    I still think that she showed plenty of fight in the AA after missing vault. She could've easily given up.

    I don't think it is embarrassing to be disappointed.

    Shame Afan doesn;t have decent difficulty on BB, she is so freaking artistic.

    She'll probably fck up floor now because we all know she has has at best a 50% hit rate, and, well, she's just hit 50 %!


    No High bar.......Zonderland, Hambuchen, Random Russian.........you can;t get anymore rude Euro than that!!!

    She made Komova and Maroney look like perfect angels...What's wrong is her refusing to shake her own teammate's hand. This isn't Deng's fault Sui. I take back my winning her to have a floor title. I do think she's better than Deng on beam and it was bad judging. Obviously things like extension/look don't really matter anymore but STILL.

    Maybe Russia should do what the British commentators suggest, to make her fight for her place on the team instead of annointing her.

    Glad I'm not the only one who thinks this, she looks like a drag queen

    Okay, sorry Lauren, I want to be all patriotic Australian but if we've got a whole other final to come between now and floor, I'm going to bed.

    GO LAUREN!
