    CONGRATS TO LIU TINGTING FOR WINNING GOLD ON BEAM! From 8th to getting all the way to the top...way to go!!

    I'm really liking Artur Dalaloyan's performance so far. Difficulty + consistency AND the fact that he's very good looking! :shimmy:

    A big Congrats to epke zonderland who won his 3rd consecutive gold on the high bar.
    After his performance during the games and his bad luck during nationals (a fall due to equipment,but no do-over) this was exactly what he needed.

    Norah Flatley finally making her NCAA debut makes my heart so happy. She looks happy and healthy out there.

    So I nearly cried watching Katelyn Ohashi's recent routine. (I'm assuming y'all have seen it...)

    Seeing someone who was almost broken by the USA Gymnastics system come out and be so strong and powerful and joyful. I know she's been crushing it in NCAA for years, but now the general public is taking note.

    And let's not forget how insane that routine actually is. A double layout with a split in the middle? Has anyone else actually done that since Gutsu in the 90s?
