Sure it's hypocritical but that doesn't stop her from being right about China using underage gymnasts at this Worlds does it? The Karolyi's certainly weren't the only ones up to shenanigans back in the 1970's. The sport was completely corrupt back then.
    Marta was talking about Huang in the Video

    Hmm, Huang is the only one that I believe is actually of age. Even Jinnan looks too young and she's been around since 2011 so goodness knows how young she was back then. I know that Aly, Nastia and Jordyn have been throwing out some tweets about Shang which is why I thought Marta was also referring to her. Actually watching the video back, when Marta talks about 'cute baby' she could be referring to anyone of the gymnasts on the team.

    Anyway, whether Marta is right or wrong, at least one of the chinese girls appears to be underage at this championships and that is the real issue here.

    Mustafina is going to be world balance beam champion. This one is nuts.

    Kyla should be World champ here though IMO!

    And who would be saying Aliya Mustafina World Balance Beam Champion before today.

    First gymnast to score a medal in all four apparatuses since Khourkina.

    And Musty is world beam champion That whole competition took place in some alternate gymnastics universe. Unbelievable but fair play she really did pull that one out of nowhere . Her beam has looked like crap for over 2 years until today!!

    I feel more about this one than when Khorkina was world champion on vault in 2001. I mean, really. she really knows how to compete like nobody's business. I would've predicted she won mens rings before balance beam.

    Managed to catch the competition -- didn't realize it was on this early.

    at how it turned out. I'm surprised, how many inquiries are typically filed in elite gymnastics these days? I tend to follow NCAA more so I'm really not sure. Mustafina submitted one but it was rejected, Ross submitted one that raised her score 0.1, and Biles submitted one that raised her score 0.2 and jumped her above both Italians for bronze. And then, of course, Universal Sports apparently believed that Radionova submitted one before her routine even started

    ETA: PML that they play Blurred Lines as the medalists walk off the floor.

    Legendre!!! SO happy about his silver medal, he was the one USA guy I really wanted to win something. This has been such a lovely Worlds for Team USA.

    And Team GB boys with two medals. Cheers, L_S!

    (Any Belgian royals sightings this week?)
