The Olympics are over!
What the hell do we do now?!
The Olympics are over!
What the hell do we do now?!
I'm confused - just noticed thread 11 is still open but 12 is locked So maybe the title of this can get changed to 13 please?
o.o I dunno. There is rhythmic gymnastics but I just can't get into it like I can artistic. Though will watch the competition.
I feel satisfied about the results at the Olympics. Some big surprises though and too messy for my liking and who knew so much would hinge on bloody tie-breaks.
Apparently all the Chinese leos bar those worn in QR/TF were designed by He Kexin I said in the thread as well that I thought DLL and HQS were best dressed.
Maybe HKX is planning a fashion career post-gymnastics?
Good for He Kexin-I liked the Chinese leos.
And I really wish gymnastics was still going on. ITA about rhythmic gymnastics--not my thing at all. I still don't know how they're being judged.
NCAA season starts in...! half a year oyyy.

Komova arriving home
Someone on IG translated:
"She says that she has not been home for 7 months and the thing she misses the most is her dog! She saw her mom in London and her dad after she came out of the car, so now she misses her dog!
She confirms that she said that she wanted to retire in the midst of emotion but now she wants to continue.
Everyone is so happy for her. Her dad says that most people just dream of going to the Olympics, so to win two silvers is huge. He says that she went to win gold but then laughs and says she told him she would bring them back in the next Olympics.
Her dad says that she will rest and then Vika and her coach will decide to continue training or continue resting, that it will be a joint decision. "
Thanks for the translation!
I must have missed her saying that she wanted to retire. I can understand how that can happen in the midst of disappointment. good for her for going on!
Closed 11 and lets just let sleeping dogs lie with 12 part 1 so carry on with 12 part deux!!
Seriously though - WHAT are we going to do?

NBC coverage - downloaded it for a laugh and the different camera angles but BBC is just soooooo much better it isn't even funny.
Thanks to PI .. I discovered I'm actually a Nontheist

In interviews on NBC Live, both Gabby and Aly confirmed they want to be in Rio
So far, there are so many top names saying they want to continue; it will be interesting to see how many actually make it.
