    This is just so inspiring. USA haven't being able to compete in female gymnastic for so long and we won the Gold medal. And I really admire Wieber able to recover from previous heart break and do her best for the team. They all did. They all did better than the preliminary. I also think the coach is smart to change their routine as they slipped quite a lot before.

    It is not just to watch them shine. It is their team spirit. It is their motivation to keep on moving forward. And I admire them very very much.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    Yawn. Gymanastics and swimming is all NBC shows in their prime time programming.

    I've been DVRing their daytime live coverage so I can see some other sports, like canoeing, rowing, water polo, cycling, and volleyball.

    What really stinks is that I can't watch the online streams because I don't have a valid cable TV package. How does that make any sense?

    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.

    I watched the BBC Sport broadcast of it with Matt Baker from Countryfile. I didn't now he did sports commentating too Smiley

    CTV hasn't done a bad job of broadcasting the Olympics in Canada. They show stuff live all morning then they do special recorded broadcasts in primetime.
    CBC is going to do the next 2 Olympics which is great because I've always preferred how they do it.

    NBC Olympic coverage is like watching TMZ. It's all about making the athletes into celebrities and barely anything about sports.
