Canada's Melissa Tancredi stepped on Carli Lloyd's head, so its not like Canada didn't get away with anything. That could have been a red card, and Canada would have had to play down a player, they were lucky they didn't have to.

Two gold medals and two bronze today. Not a bad score.

Just finished watching the last beach volleyball semi. Jen Kessy and April Ross of the US came back from being down a set and a few points to beat the top ranked Brazilians! It will be an All-American Final!

Fight on Jen and April!

Yay to Meares and Pearson. Will need to find replays this morning, I was asleep for both.

Khorkina will always be my #1 Russian Diva, but yes, Mustafina has quickly risen to #2.

Looks like I'll have to keep waiting to see a Kiwi win it in my lifetime! Nick Willis couldn't even get into the medals this year. Damn.

Just saw a replay of Epke Zonderland's routine. Wow.

Fuck yes. Never knew how much I'd miss her until she was gone. Was never a big fan but she had skills named after her on every single apparatus, multiples on bars and floor.

The bar final last night was awesome. I was not disappointed with Gabby's placement since that final was stacked even without her factoring in. I knew if any of those other girls hit Gabby wouldn't stand a chance even with better routines than she's been doing.

It's not gymnastics without scrunchies, a full circumference of hair clips, and glitter.

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.
