China gold, Japan silver, and USA gets the bronze! USA Jonathan Horton hits his routines. Sasha Artemev was great on pommel horse - more consistent than in the national competitions, he says he feels better on the international stage. China's difficulty (A score) was awesome! Way to go China!  [quote] As expected, China blitzed the competition, taking the top team score on five of the six events. After a slow start on floor exercise, the team was untouchable. World champions Xiao Qin (16.100 on pommel horse) and Chen Yibing (16.575 on still rings) were superb on their respective specialities. On vault, Yang Wei scored 16.600 for a near-stuck Tsuk triple full, and Li Xiaopeng took 16.775 for his namesake vault (Yurchenko half on, Randi). In the fifth rotation, Huang Xu took the top mark for China on parallel bars with a 16.475, followed by Li at 16.450. China held such a high lead that by the end of the sixth rotation, team anchor Zou Kai needed only 8.75 to secure the gold on high bar. A routine with a stuck dismount delivered 15.975 and the gold medal. The Chinese team, which included three veterans of the gold medal team from the 2000 Olympics, were moved to tears after the victory. Japan, the defending team champions, could be relieved with the silver. The team was second to China on pommel horse and still rings, and edged China on floor exercise. Japan earned the lowest team total on vault, typically the highest-scoring event, and trailed the U.S. team going into the sixth rotation. Japan turned in three strong high bar routines to pass the U.S. on pommel horse. [/quote] Results 1. China 45.925(6) 46.025(1) 48.875(1) 49.325(1) 49.025(1) 46.950(1) 286.125 2.

The Chinese spectators are NOT chanting out loud "Chi-na" in English. They are chanting a root/cheer in Mandarin: "Ga-You", similar to "Go Go Go" or "Go for it"! Why would the Chinese chant China in English? If that were the case, they'd chant: Zhong Guo (Mandarin for "China") Someone correct him before he continues to make a fool of himself!

China's 3-time Olympian 28 year old Yang Wei wins 2008 Olympic all-around gold. Yang Wei wins by 2.6, 2nd-10th place is separated only by .475 points, very close competition. 1 Yang Wei (China) 94.575 2 Kohei Uchimura (Japan) 91.975 (2 falls on pommel horse, in 2nd rotation, great bar routine with 3 releases including kovacs full with stuck dismount) 3 Benoit Caranobe (France) 91.925 4 Hiroyuki Tomita (Japan) 91.750 (peeled off rings right before/on his dismount and landed on his side) 5 Sergey Khorokhordin (Russia) 91.700 (vault fall) 6 Maxim Devyatovsky (Russia) 91.700 (vault fall) 7 Fabian Hambuechen (Germany) 91.675 (had two extra swings in the middle of p-bars, on high bar hand slipped on catch of kovacs full and he fell, and repeated the element again, catching, nice 2 releases in a row after that, stuck dismount) 8 Yang Taeyoung (Korea) 91.600 9 Jonathan Horton (USA) 91.575 10 Rafael Martinez (Spain) 91.500 more results China's Chen Yibing did not do his dismount on high bar and just "inexplicably" jumped off according to International Gymnast (scoring 12.975) and did not compete on his next event, floor. He fell on his first event pommel horse (13.750), and did a good comeback on his next 3 events.

For those wondering about Yang Wei's coach standing on the podium and next to the high bar the whole time, and coaching him - it is allowed for the coach to stand under the high bar the whole time. He doesn't have to go back and forth to only be under the bar when he is doing "hard" skill. also: "Coach ready to spot at each event" - http://gymchat.com/messageboards/showthread.php?t=33396&highlight=spot

It's a 0.3 deduction for the coach talking to Yang Wei throughout the whole routine.
