I have never felt so sick to my stomach over something I have no control over (not baseball related) in my life as I was waiting for Beth to get gold on the Uneven bars so right now as happy as I am that she won a medal I can’t help but mourn for the gold medal it could have been. BETH, BEth, Beth.
I would rather He won the gold (Nastia killer that I love) but at least I can like this podium. The first podium in gymnastics so far that doesn’t make me want to smack around someones little dog.
I have been thinking and a lot of people hate that He was “under age” and have no problem calling her every name in the book but people forget she lives in a Communist Country where she has no control over anything she does.
EVERYONE seems to have some sympathy for Tatiana Gutsu because she was from a Communist Country when in reality that wasn’t even communist anymore and the Soviets cheated calling themselves the Unified team so they could compete to gether and milk the world out of all the gold medals.
All the little Chinese gymnasts run around smiling when they mess up, acting happy and I always get the impression it is beat into them from a young age to do that. Imagine living in that kind of Society and than realize He could go home and be beat by her coach for not winning because that is what a Communist Country is.
Here is the start list. ALL discussion for the Event Finals goes here. PLEASE take all other results to their Blog.
Like I said in my other blog, If Beth Tweddle does not win the Uneven Bars gold medal this is officially the WORST OLYMPICS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!
OMG, Nightmare story time. I was writing an e-mail and came up with this horrible nightmare idea of what could happen in the bars finals. He Kexin is going to tie Beth for Gold and lose on the tie breaker.NBC could totally set this up with the judges. Imagine the movie NBC could and would put together if this happened.lol
If this does happen I am totally becoming a freaking horror writer. Move over Stephen King the Sox season is not the worst thing to happen since 1918
I am so thrilled Koko made the uneven bar finals. She had a tough couple years so being here is huge for her.
I am gutted for Beth’s dismount on bars. She had that damn medal, HAD IT. I just want to scream.
Mustafina was short on two of her early handstand but a great stuck landing. Best part of the competition.
Gabby needs to burn that leotard. It is gross.
Loved how the US girls were rooting for Beth. You could tell Jordyn was the happiest. I think maybe she appreciated the hug more than we know.
Now I must say, two dead hangs and all I think He Kexin was underscored. I won’t go as far as to say she deserved gold but I think it should have been closer.
I also want to know why no one is calling Gabby out for the dirty look on her face when she saw her score and that she was last? Komova is getting ridiculed but one fake smile from Gabby and the rest dirty looks is never mentioned. Hypocrisy at its best.
