Very disappointing about Kyla and bars. But she still has AA and beam finals.Finally caught up on the qualifying videos. Random thoughts:
Wow, amazing UB show by the Chinese and British women! So glad to see so many of them hit, should be a great final. No UB final for Ross...such great lines/execution but the Chinese and British women have stepped up their difficulty and connections to another level.
Simone looks like she is on a whole different level on vault/beam/fx, but her mistake on UB does make her look a little vulnerable. Went in thinking Simone could make 2 major mistakes and still win, but now looks like Yao/Mustafina/Iordache have an outside chance to catch her if they hit and Simone makes one mistake.
But Simone still looks like she could, not a stretch, go home with 5 of the 6 gold medals available. Has anyone ever dominated to that degree?!
Rough UB day for the US women, who does Marta trust now for the 3rd spot in the 3 up 3 count final!?
Skinner almost pulled a Raismann and beat Ross for the second AA spot! Great day for her!
