Hey! The women’s gymnastics all-around competition was today, but it’s not airing on TV until tonight and you could have only watched it live online if you have a workplace/computer setup/cable provider that allows for such things. So I’m sitting here, knowing who won what and I want to write about it because tomorrow frickin’ morning seems awfully late, but I know people are sensitive about spoilers, but the internet has basically made it impossible not to have every aspect of the Olympics spoiled so far. So what do I do? I have decided I will put the information after the jump. Pictured are Gabrielle Douglas and Aly Raisman, the two gymnasts competing for Team USA. Proceed at your own risk.
Gabby Douglas from Team USA won the gold medal, while Russia’s Victoria Komova and Aliya Mustafina took the silver and bronze. Team USA’s Aly Raisman (who narrowly scored the second slot in the all-arounds from favorite Jordyn Wieber) narrowly placed in 4th. Big huge massive congrats to Gabby, who has become the first African-American, and the first woman of color, to win the women’s all-around title. [USA Today]
