    QueenOfGoths Fuck you Dave!

    Excellent start from the British men.

    Great pommel horse routines from Matt Whitlock and Louis Smith

    One of the French gymnasts has broken his leg apparently :(

    Nile's fucking flying. He's gonna overtake Max in no time.

    I guess Ukraine are in the final group, meaning I'll have to stay up if I want to see my future husband. Saying that, I did catch a gorgeous Lithuanian earlier. He was pretty rubbish, but at least he wasn't 5'3", Mr Verniaiev!

    moonsi til worked it out now!

    I saw a American on the horse and his muscles looked fake like one of those tattoo sleeves! Not of course just took my breath away.

    I like the GB gymnast Kristian Thomas as he always looks like he is on the verge of tears :D

    The stress has turned him grey :D

    I didn't see Said's fall, but fuck, I wish I hadn't just looked at the article on the Heil *vom* I remember my heart being in my mouth when Verniaiev fell from the high bar at the Europeans, but, shit, this was something else.

    I am missing Mitch Fenner from the commentary. I did wonder why he disappeared, and sadly he's dead :(

    At least there's no Matt "IT'S A GOLD FOR GREAT BRITAIN!! Oh..." Baker.

    Me76 Not very good lurker

    Who is the male commentator on the gymnastics?

    I was impressed by the 41 year old competing in her 7th games today. But felt very bad that her team had picked a baby pink leotard so she looked really incongruous.

    I don't know but was also wondering that

    His first name is Craig, dunno who he is.

    Have caught up a bit on yesterday, that Brazilian 16yo Flavia someone is pretty impressive!!

    Beth Twaddle should be banned from opening her mouth though.

    Mens Team Final

    Monday (Today - hurray!) 20.00 BBC2 (Eastenders :rolleyes:) then 20.30 BBC1

    Britain
    Japan
    China
    Russia
    USA
    Brazil
    Germany
    Ukraine

    The team:


    Kristian Thomas
    Max Whitlock
    Nile Wilson
    Louis Smith
    Brinn Bevan

    That isn't one of the combos of men (phnar) I saw going to Rio. Expected Dan Purvis and Sam Oldham to be dropped, but thought Courtney Tulloch would have made the cut.

    Britain are in rotation with the hosts:

    1. Rings
    2. Vault
    3. PBars
    4. High Bar
    5. Floor
    6. Pommel

    I'm no expert, but I'm guessing that's not the order the guys would have liked :(

    People seem to be expecting a silver this time around, but I'm not so optimistic. Russia and USA are much stronger than in London, and there'll be no home audience, plus huge burdens of expectation.

    And leave your "cheaty complaining whinypants" at home this time, Mr. Uchimura!

    QueenOfGoths Fuck you Dave!

    I'd like to think they could repeat their bronze or even get silver but with China and Japan plus Russia and USA fielding strong teams I have an awful fear they will be 4th.

    However I reckon Louis Smith and Max Whitlock are in with a good shout for medals in the pommel horse and Max Wilson and Nile Wilson could sneak one in the individual

    It must be so hard being a teenager trying to do your best at your discipline (esp with the crowd fucking around... Did you see the Guatemalan girl screw up her beam decent because the crowd were doing a Mexican wave? :mad:) but to do it as part of the mixed team where you are the only one from your country must be terrifying!

    "I don't know if you can hear us over the crowd"

    Oh shut up, Matt, FFS!!

    I'm gonna propose they use him and Tweddle for targets in the double TRAPs.

    My baby's sitting this one out so I've lost some degree of interest. Sensible though, Ukraine would be lucky to scrape sixth, whereas he'll be expecting individual golds.

    Ooh, early points lost for the Americans

    Nguyen looking good on pbars. Oleg will be taking the gold next week though.

    I think we're missing the vault to see pommel done badly instead :mad:
