Yeah I just finished watching that too. Damn Aussies. Sorry aussies that are here!!

Poor US girl. Robbed of the gold because she tied, and because she isnt a 12yo Chinese girl. On an upside, Shes cute as hell and we can all hope that she does pictures sometime soon.

The judging has been awful! I think our US girls have gotten the rough end of the stick from some of those judges.

That made me mad! I swear Nastia had a great routine compared to her... if she didnt fall then yes that score is fine! but she fell... more than once and had too many problems.

SUBJECTIVE ATHLETICS BOO!

I have a feeling that after the Olympics are over, the IOC will "discover" what they already know, that one or more of the Chinese women gymnasts are not 16, and the medals will be stripped from them.

I highly doubt that.

I thought that was just wrong! Pretty upsetting to say the least.
I am beginning to question the Jamaican runner. He leaves the others in the dust then slows before crossing the finish line to glance around and make "homey signs" to the crowd and cameras. Poor sportsmanship, or just an arrogant bastard. Of course, maybe I am just jealous because I have trouble keeping up with my two-year-old...

I was watching that contest in the hope that something good would be on afterwards. I actually thought that the chinese girl that came third looked the best......but I admit I know zero about the sport.
