Unlike in the US the rest of the world could see it live Wink boy those poor Russians managed to **** it up in the last round. Never seen such sad faces for silver.

Yes, NBC got it wrong re: live coverage...

I also sympathize with the Russian team. They were accurately described as more talented but less consistent. Russian faces seem to have a consistent sullen appearance anyway but the dark haired moon-faced girl was especially notable. It seemed an ocean of water was behind her eyes...

Congratulations to the USA woman's gymnastic team. They did win gold 4 olympics ago, so it's not quite as shocking as 16 years ago.
