Nastia Liukin Was Only Slightly More Entertaining Than Bela Karolyi
This photo says it all, right? Bela Karolyi lost it in the NBC Studios and nearly assualted Bob Costas after watching Nastia Liukin's floor routine that sealed the gold medal.
Liukin becomes the third women's gold medalist in the All-Around from the United States, joining Mary Lou Retton and Carly Patterson.
Perhaps the favorite, or just the most marketed before the games, Shawn Johnson earned silver and really couldn't have asked for much more. Liukin, in my humble gymnastics expertise, was simply as good as it gets.
After getting beaten by the Chinese Elementary gym team in the team competition, it's nice to see a 1-2 beatdown. More on this tomorrow morning most likely, with video footage that NBC didn't get to.
Now we better make sure Costas is OK. He has more bloggers to hate on after these games.
