Cheng Fei is the 3 time reigning world champion on vault, and perhaps[ Read More... ]

This release move is awesome by He Hexin, but the gold should have gone to Nastia Liukin. Nastia stuck her landing, and had fewer deductions - her execution "B" score should have been higher, and it shouldn't have gone to a tie. As Tim Daggett notes on the NBC coverage, the judges on the final panel can't be from the country of the competitiors, so for example in this final, no Russian judge,[ Read More... ]
