first off, Svetlana, the anorexic looking Russian, FREAKS ME OUT! She's so skinny I feel like she'll break!!
They also said she posed for "dubious magazines" hahaha

It bothers me that they have to wear makeup and most of them are under 18 and can't wear shorts. A TAD sexist ?

I agree Sammy....Everytime she landed I thought she was going to break both of her legs!

I am looking forward to the All-Around Final tonight.

But I think I need to forgo the internet and radio until then. Cause they will spurt off who won and take away all suspense.

CNN and ESPN can't wait to 'scoop' the results.

At least MSNBC posts a 'spoiler alert' when reviewing the day's activities...

To be safe, I'm sticking to only NBC media properties so I don't hear anything before I watch...

Forget the jailbait - the real women are playing beach volleyball - have you seen those "uniforms"?

Not to mention the magnificent softball pitcher Jenny Finch!

So the other olympics thread that would have been better titled "Male gymnasts and their skin tight uniforms" flooded and women's gymnastics...up to 5...to be in a world of gay men! haha. I am pumped for tonight's individuals, anyone joining me in that?

pure genius!

>>Svetlana, the anorexic looking Russian

I think she looks weird too...she doesn't have as much muscle as the other girls and she's taller so she looks really strange...but I wouldn't say anorexic

I think that Svetlana looks beautiful, and not 'anorexic'. I have seen so much worse.

There's always been a lot of dance in the gymnastics. That's why I watch it and enjoy it even though for the most part sports are just beyond me.

My favourite sport, of course is female Volleyball. In fact is the only sport that I like.

Doesn't it seem as though the audience at the Olympics is 100 per cent American?
I don't think I've ever heard such good response for us before.

Dangit, Carly Patterson got the gold. Oh well, she deserved it.

Svetlana putting the Russian flag on the bars made me tear up (she's such a diva, even with the silver- she's still stealing attention). She looks so proud- she's so diva. I love her, too bad she's done after this Olympics.
