Posted on 07/31/2012 10:34:36 PM PDT by SMCC1
For anyone who was watching the olympics tonight, this kid's insane vault.
According to Bela Karolyi, should have been a ten.
All 5 of these kids were awesome.

So now did the judges manage to find. 267 to take off???
These “Judges” should be required to provide an accounting of their scoring.
This HAS to be political.
That was awsome!! I can only imagine what it must feel like to be able to do that!
Even in slow motion the vault was perfect.
Old school, a ‘10’. Easy.
Maybe because she’s from Long Beach, CA? Her routine was beautiful.
Amazing vault and she totally stuck it on the landing!
I can’t find why she isn’t a 10. That was picture perfect and unbelievable perfect form.
It was perfect..awe inspiring..I’ve heard of no one that can find a flaw...but the judges.
The whole team was a joy to watch.
You know.. If I was to run toward the vault horse and plant my hands on the floor I’d just end up in a broken heap.
What these girls do boggles the mind.
The girls did great!
Kenneth Lester....the judge in the George Zimmerman lynch mob case...has been gone a couple of weeks.
Now we know where he was...he was judging Olympic gymastics. Lester has history of screwing over innocent Americans
Of course its political. I watched the gymnastics and that little Russian girl who went off the mat after her vault didn’t receive nearly enough deductions for it. She should have scored in the 12 point area.
There has always been a bias toward the USA at the Olympics. Or should I say - against the USA? I absolutely love gymnastics but, believe its more fair when someone touches a wall first - like in swimming. Otherwise, I believe there is a lot of discrimination going on at the judges’ table.
Awesome to say the least. I was really proud of all those girls last night.
None of you saw the flaw? It is so obvious. I am just suprised they didn’t take off more deductions.
Ok, I will tell you since everyone here has no clue about how gymnastics is scored.
SHE HAD THE WRONG COLOR SCRUNCHY IN HER HAIR!!!!!!
“...So now did the judges manage to find. 267 to take off???...”
Must have been the VERY slight bending of her left leg on landing. Otherwise, there was nothing wrong with her effort.
Sure looks like fun, though, if you could do it yourself. ;-)
Perhaps I should have used the sarc tag after the first part of my comment. Hit POST before I saw that it should have been used. Sorry
