Did anyone catch the action last night? Wow! They showed 5 ring sets and 4 floor routines and all of 3-5 from all of the women's events. It was absolutely incredible to see what those guys are doing on rings. Iron cross, pull to inverted cross, drop to maltese, etc, etc. Jordan Jovtchev tied with Dimosthenis Tampakos on rings, but the crowd and the announcers all thought Jovtchev was the clear winner. I'm not sure what the judges saw that I didn't, but Tampakos didn't even stick his landing.
On the floor, Jovtchev tied with Paul Hamm. But all of the routines they showed were spectacular. A Canadian guy named Kyle Shewfelt did some great tumbling and the young Brazillian guy Diego Hypolito was awesome as well. They were both doing passes that just boggle my mind. Their body sense and air awareness is just amazing. And Jovtchev's flair sequence on the floor was just amazing. I would love to see him do some breakdancing:-) Paul Hamm shared the gold with Jovtchev and he was very clean. He won the all-around competition, so he had quite a week last August.
I have a friend in my gymnastics club that used to compete against the Hamm twins and beat them. It goes to show how far perserverence and good coaching can take you.
The women were great too. The 4'9, 78 lbs Chinese girl that won on beam was tiny, but she was like a machine. I bet she has spent half her waking life on that beam;-)
