    Men's and Ladies' Gymnastics

    McKayla Mulroney has a broken toe, which she just reinjured in practice.

    http://content.usatoday.com/communit...y-breaks-toe/1

    She is still planning to compete on the vault and is in London.

    Anna Li, first alternate, injured her neck & will not compete. She has to wear a cervical collar.

    There are two other alternates; a third may still be named to replace Anna.

    Competition in the Ladies events starts Sunday.

    The men's team looked great on the Today Show. It was hysterical Savannah Guthrie told them to do a stunt, and Matt Lauer freaked out because he was worrried a freak injury could happen... Go Team USA!

    She asked them to do a stunt? They should be carried from place to place in sedan chairs! This is not the moment to introduce anything unplanned in their training regimens. At least let these poor souls make it into the arena in one piece.

    When does gymnastics start, anyway?

    Kieran Behan, a long shot to even make the finals in gymnastics, was once told he could never walk again.

    I think he and Sarah Robles (US women's weightlifting) are my favourite stories of the games so far:

    Anyone watching the women's qualifiying? Canada just made the team final . As a Canadian, I'm so thrilled. Gymnastics has always been a major struggle for us, so this is REALLY huge.

    I've got a question for those of you with some knowledge of the sport. I was watching the floor routine for Victoria Moors CAN, and she seemed to get through really well. Her tumbling passes looked clean, and she did a great job performing between the elements. She actually had a 6.000 in difficulty, which to my knowledge is quite high, and she's been scoring really well all year. Yet, here, with what seemed to be a really strong routine, her execution score was terrible (8.1000) and her overall was a 14.100, which is really low by her usual standard. People thought she had a chance at making the final on floor going in, which her previous scores would suggest was a possibility, so it was surprising to see her drop so low here. Can anyone give some insight? Thanks!

    It will be hard for NBC to make money in Sochi because of the emmense time zone difference.
