Off the subject a little but while watching the NBC telecast last night I was so glad to see Rebecca Tunney perform fairly well on beam. I remember Tim, Elfie, and Al raking her over the coals when she struggled on beam at the American Cup. They said things like she will never recover her confidence and will probably meltdown in front of her home crowd at the Olympics. They were total jerks and quite frankly I was embarrassed as a US citizen by what they said. Rebecca showed them yesterday that she is not quite the fragile little girl they thought she was. They should have apologized for what they said at the American Cup but they didn’t of course.
This is one of the only great things that happened so far! ahaha. Moors not in the floor finals, the lady from Greece not in the beam finals, Everything Gabby, all things Jordyn…I feel like it’s been such a letdown so far. The best part of women’s qualifying was Tweddle on bars! I hope she totally kills it in event finals.
Beth Tweddle is really awesome. Not only is she an amazing gymnast, but she is also really sweet. There is a picture of her hugging Jordyn Wieber once she found that she didn’t make AA. GO FOR GOLD, BETH!
