Find Out Who Won The Women’s Gymnastics All-Around Medals!

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.

Watch "That's What Makes You Flexible"!

Earlier this week, the folks at NOC composed a Ryan Lochte-themed parody of that inescapable Carly Rae Jepsen song called “Call Me Lochte.” Well, now the gold medal winning U.S. women’s gymnastics team has scored their own parody tribute, this time to One Direction’s “That’s What Makes You Beautiful” called “That’s What Makes You Flexible.” It’s cute, but when I met the Fab Five at Olympic Trials, they all expressed a love for either Drake or Justin Bieber.

If Nose Picking Were An Olympic Sport, This Guy Would Get The Gold

This guy was going for the gold while Jordyn Wieber was winning it. On a side note, we’re sorry Jordyn didn’t qualify for the individual all-around. That’s boogers. [Laugh At Your Problems]

So, yesterday was basically one of the most exciting days I’ve ever had. As you know, Julie is headed to the Olympics in London in August, but I got the chance to attend the gymnastics Olympic trials this week in San Jose on behalf of P&G Beauty. For three hours, I had the opportunity to watch, up close, the country’s best gymnasts practice for competition. It was, quite simply, awe-inspiring. I’ll be posting photos and videos in the next week.

But equally as exciting was sitting down to talk with an incredible athlete who is not competing this year – Shawn Johnson, who won the gold medal on balance beam, and the silver all-around individual medal at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Earlier this month, despite prior intentions to compete for a slot on the 2012 Olympic team, Johnson announced her retirement due to recurring problems with her knee following an injury. Instead, her new role at the Olympic Games will be as a P&G correspondent, interviewing athletes and cheering them on from the stands. After the jump, read my interview with Shawn, who talks about what she learned from being surrounded by so many other women, how she feels about being a role model, and what question she’s dying to ask the Olympic athletes in London. Oh yeah, and we also obviously talked about gross beauty tips, Ryan Gosling, tall guys, and “Magic Mike.” Because duh. Keep reading »
