The American men did great last night with the gymnastics team final. Jonathan Horton was rock solid on almost everything. It makes me laugh how the whole team is like 5'2 or something...anyway. Alex Artemov...amazing pommel horse routine, the only event he did to hold on to that bronze medal. Justin Spring on the high bar was fantastic...the dismount incredible. I think the announcers really underestimated the team and how they would do without the Hamms. They kept bringing them up and how it was amazing they were doing this without them. I think the Hamms are lame. I am so glad they were not there. It gave all these newcomers a chance to shine and everyone got to see them do just that.
Tonight the women! Let's hope they look better than they did at prelims.
