Yep, Khorkina was quite entertaining to watch - both as a gymnast and as a person.

Here's a cool gymnastics blog that I found. Besides articles, it has opinion pieces, interviews and even a leotard fashion police!

I don't understand all the hoopla over McKayla. She's disappointed she didn't win when she's a world champion on the vault. It's not like she completely lost it and started throwing things around and attacking people. She was angry at herself; since when was it wrong to show some emotion during the competition of a lifetime? I'd rather see some real emotion on an athlete then have them be like robots.

i was just kidding around. she's had such a super-serious look on her face, and she's so focused and determined. she just seems like a very, very tough cookie.

Oh no, I wasn't directly referring to you. I was just using your post to show who I was talking about.

Yeah, I think she was so determined to win and when she failed, she was pissed at herself. It's only natural to feel like that.

so I had to watch and entire hour of women's beach volleyball tonight and now they're going to put diving in late night. So annoying. Plus a mens gymnastics final was also pushed to late night tonight. It would have been nice if they could have cut that first entire hour of beach volleyball in half. Especially since I watched the other US team in the afternoon slot. It's already well past my bedtime so I'll have to miss diving.

The Russian high jumper (Ivan Ukhov) cracked me up. Like an ADHD cast extra from Hair, frantically crawling around shirtless under the benches trying to find his uniform top. Totally cool and collected on the jumps though.

Did anyone else know that speed walking is an event?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racewalking

On top of that people are doping for it?

Yay for Aly Raisman. I told you she's incredible in floor She has won more medals in this Olympics than any other gymnast, I believe that's what they said last night. She's very poised and mature, and has conducted herself with class.

I have to rewatch all the gymnastics on demand, the NBC coverage has been so bad and so one sided. I really enjoyed the men's high bar last night, especially the guy from the Netherlands. Can't believe the skills they're doing.

I finally figured out who Mustafina reminded me of.

currently loving beach volleyball finals . . . and off to find out if the Aussies got trounced by Serbia in the water polo . . . and so pumped for the Boomers v the Dream Team . . . we'll get squashed no doubt but I'm hoping we at least put up a fight toodles!
