Olympic Spoilers ahead (if you haven't watched gymnastics yet)

Jordyn Wieber did not qualify to the all-around final in gymnastics. She is the reigning world all-around champion. NBC has made a hype machine for her (she's good, but I don't think she was as much as a gold medal favorite as her hype indicated).

And now she won't be competing in the AA final... at all. The entire way that NBC promoted the gymnasts (Jordyn and Gabby being the AAers) has been shattered. I can't wait to see NBC's broadcast tonight.

Also the Canadian women made it to the team final after not qualifying a full team for two Olympics. Congratulations Canada.

    I heard that from my sister. How sad ;__;

    It's almost like the case of Natalie Coughlin: She was highly promoted and talked about, and at the Olympics Trials, she was insanely close to not going at all. She just made it in the 100 Free Finals, placing 6th.
