    SPOILERS: Gymnastics Individual Events

    Men's Floor Ex:

    Kyle Shewfelt won with an elegant routine and stick landings. He tied Marian Dragulescu in score (9.787), but through some tiebreak system that was pretty unclear from the CBC commentators, Shewfelt won the tiebreak. (Why even have a tie break to begin with?)

    1 SHEWFELT   Kyle  CAN 9.787
    2 DRAGULESCU   Marian  ROM 9.787
    3 JOVTCHEV   Jordan  BUL 9.775
    4 DEFERR   Gervasio  ESP 9.712
    5 HAMM   Paul  USA 9.712
    6 NAKANO   Daisuke  JPN 9.712
    7 YONEDA   Isao  JPN 9.662
    8 HAMM   Morgan  USA 9.65

    What is with the version of "O Canada" played in Athens? It sounds like Charles Ives did the orchestration at his most ornery.

    Women's Uneven Parallel Bars

    1 LEPENNEC   Emilie  FRA 9.687
    2 HUMPHREY   Terin  USA 9.662

    6 SOFRONIE Nicoleta   Daniela  ROM 9.462
    7 LIN   Li  CHN 9.2
    8 KHORKINA   Svetlana  RUS 8.925

    'Nuf said.

    I haven't seen it yet, but it does sound like the U.S. women did very well. And way to go Hatch and Humphrey! They weren't the shining stars, but for both to walk away with Olympic silver is tremendous. And what a big win for the French girl on bars!

    Joe:
    All around gymnasts are gymnasts that are good/decent at all four events. Those aren't necessary the best gymnasts on each event and in this Olympics you have specialists who make it harder for the all around guys to make it to the finals. Also the Koreans may have had bad prelims which don't affect AA score.

    Looks like maybe B&S' and S&P's decision not to skate at Worlds 2002 after SLC was sound; Hamm is performing well, but not brilliantly, and the scores are within thousandths of each other.

    I've heard that this is goodbye to Nemov, which is very sad.

    Nemov went just before Paul H, and the officials had to tell him to wait. The croud was hysterical over Nemov's low scores, booing, yelling, making a fuss. The scores were reevaluated and reposted higher than before, but still not good enough to medal. I've never seen anything like it. The fact that Paul could give a solid performance after such a distruption was admirable.

    Although Nemov performed with a lot of style, he didn't stick the landing. He was very professional about it and even signaled for the cround to be quite and sit down, trying to restore calm. You would think you were at a soccer match.

    Hmm. No soccer match reaction to Khorkina's scores though...

    Nemov's routine just seemed so breathtaking! I didn't understand what deductions besides the landing might have been taken. Paul took a hop on his landing. Is that hop less of a deduction than the huge step Nemov took? Otherwise Nemov's seemed like a routine that would even merit bonus points. Why do such a difficult routine when less difficult routines done cleanly will still win? I'd love some illumination by those in the know.

    Alexei was robbed!!!!!

    I hate Al's commentary that b.c the Korean messed up the HB, he's not as worthy as Paul Hamm. I think Al needs to think back to when Paul fell on his a$$ on the vault before ripping on a gymnast for making a mistake.

    I'm not impressed with Paul's effort on the HB, however he had more variations on swings than Nemov, I think if Nemov had some one armed swings and changes he would have won the HB. His program was heavy on the release moves and not much else.

    But I still think Nemov should have gotten a medal (at least the silver).

    Just watched the high bar. I agree RealtorGal, just don't understand on the bar, Nemov's routine was obviousely more difficult than Paul, the only difference was at landing, but Paul had a small hop as well. Then if you watched the Italy guy again his routine was much more difficult than Paul's and both landing had a little hop. Why they got the same score?
