Rewatching the Olympic coverage of the women's artistic gymnastics. The NBC coverage is absolutely horrendous; such twats. The original BBC commentary is a hundred times better, you guys are so lucky.
The commentators laughed a few times when several non-US gymnasts fell. Disgusting.
When I was a kid, Olga Korbut got me interested in gymnastics. Then Nadia Comăneci came along.
Aye.. that's how old I am.
When the Olympics are on, I like to watch. It's such an incredibly precise sport, and they're all so young and talented.
Can't think of many sports which require the athlete to smile and stance for approval (although I also follow ice-skating.. a sport underrated for it's athleticism.)
