***SPOILER ALERT!*** (Note: The results aren’t revealed until the end of the post, but if you click on the links I can promise you no such courtesy.)
Here are some of the highlights from the London 2012 women’s gymnastics final (with plenty of links so you can keep reading):
- Strong vaults from Americans Jordyn Wieber (which was better than her qualifier), Gabby Douglas and McKayla Maroney.
- Great Britain’s Jennifer Pinches falls off the beam. Speculation is always risky, but this definitely damaged their chances at a medal.
- After the first routines, the scores are U.S. 48.132, China 46.399, Italy 41.899, Great Britain 39.199.
- Japan’s Yu Minobe falls of the beam. Not a good day for that event, it seems. Soon after, China’s Deng Lin fell off the vault.
- Too close for comfort? Halfway through, Team USA had 92.931 and Russia had 92.532.
- Russia’s Anastasia Grishina scored a low 12.466 on her floor routine, which might have been the deciding factor for the gold.
- Deng gets a 14.9 on her vault after taking an extra step. This wasn’t what China needed to medal.
- Soon, the chanting began, “U-S-A, U-S-A!“
Now: Your last chance to turn back before the results are revealed (if you can’t already deduce them). Keep scrolling at your own risk!
Bronze: Romania, with a score of 176.414
Silver: Russia, with a score of 178.530
Gold: Team USA, with a score of 183.596 — Five points more than the nearest competition!
And the crowd goes wild over the first gold for the U.S. in women’s gymnastics since 1996.
