    She is an American. but a russian born american. now is she ever going to be the American sweetheart like Mary Lou ?? This question has come up time and time again. Many Experts say NO. they say America will not embrace her as they did Mary Lou. Not sure what will happen.

    She is very pretty, but if you look at her closely, she has two bumps/foreheads. :)

    Silver medal awarded because the Chinease girl, who many think is underage by the way, her excution marks were better. They had the same overall 16.725 score on the uneven bars.

    My question though, why is all the hype around Shawn Johnson and not Nastia as much?

    Wow, she got totally robbed, and she knows it.

    First Sacramone on vault, and now this on bars. Some real 'objective' scoring going on. :roll:

    She looks like her mom! In fact they look like they are more sisters than mother and daughter!

    The Chinese girl had mistakes. Period. Same start values, and she had more mistakes than Nastia. And again, the Chinese girl is put ahead. This is disgusting.

    Also...Shawn is more of the 'all-American' girl with the big, bubbly smile. I think she is just easier for people to warm up to, and Nastia is more detached and cool, and possibly more introverted. Just different personalities, but both are great athletes and gymnasts.

    That was ********, glaring mistakes over artistry = 16.725.


    Now they are blaming the Australian judge. But it's what it is and they just have to move on from it. But you guys are right, looking at these girls from China, they look like they haven't even reached puberty:-?

    The one that won the gold on uneven bars is one of the ones in big doubt. Initially papers had her as 14, and then suddenly those papers are gone, and she has a passport that says she is 16.

    Sure.

    The judging has been a bit suspect in other events, too.

    No way. First, Shawn's like 14. I think Nastia's definitely pretty but I don't think I'd say "hott"

    But we are not Olympic judges though. Maybe Liukin had mistakes that we, average joes, just didn't see.

    Edit: forgot the not

    Luikin's forehead is to blame for not winning the gold.

    Here are 3 links which explain the facts of the judging system and how the obscure tiebreak system works in the event of a tied score for the gold medal. BTW judges don't vote on the panel when their own athletes compete.

    This is the overview
    http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/hotstories/5952127.html

    For a more detailed account see
    http://voices.washingtonpost.com/olympics/2008/08/tie_goes_to_chinese_gymnast_in.html

    click the link 'full explanation of the tiebreaker'

    for a detailed tiebreaker explanation.

    I think in all olympic events that are judged, judges don't vote for their own.

    Totally O.T. and dumb thought that I keep having...

    If Brad Gilbert were covering gymnastics, I think he would call her Nasty Luke.

    Sorry for the random stupid thought.:|

    Her forehead is not bad at all. She will definitely be really hot in a few years
