London Olympics 2012- Womens Gymnastics Prelims

*Spoiler Alert*

So with the time change from London to here they don't air the Olympic events live. They air them during prime time several hours after they happen. Facebook however, posts things like results and pictures as they happen. There was a warning before the gymnastics events started on Facebook saying that if you didn't want to know results as they happen you should unlike the page, then re like it after the Olympics. I was not smart enough to heed this warning. I got on Facebook this morning and at the very top of the page it had results. And those results where shocking results.


The USA is in 1st with a score of 181.863, Russia in 2nd with a score of 180.429, China in 3rd with a score of 176.637, and Romania in 4th with a score of 176.264

(mens & womens both in 1st after prelims for team competition! Go team USA)

U.S. women individual finals
AA- Raisman and Douglas will compete in finals Raisman is in 2nd, and Douglas is in 3rd

{now this is where I was shocked! Jorden Wieber was the favorite to win gold. She was the "it girl" She has won every recent competition in the US and scored above Gabrielle Douglas, and Alexandra Raisman in every competition leading up to the Olympics. Including Olympic trials! Before prelims we all thought that Wieber and Douglas would be the two to compete. Wieber is in 4th after prelims, and because there is a rule where only the top 2 from each country may compete in finals, Wieber misses her chance at All around gold. I'm super sad for her, but super excited for Raisman, because nobody thought she was going to have this chance. Good luck girls!}

Here are the U.S. individual event finals (finish in qualifications):

VT- Maroney (1st)
UB- Douglas (6th)
BB- Douglas (3rd), Raisman (5th)
FX- Raisman (1st), Wieber (6th)

So there's a different outcome than we all expected. I can't wait to see how the rest of the competition turns out!

Olympic Cake!

Hey friends! Who watched the Olympic opening ceramonies?!? I DID!! We had a viewing party with my extended family. I also made this fantastic cake! (I know what your thinking...I should deafinatly be on Food Network.....right?) It was fun! As you all know from my last post, I'm obsessed with the Olympics. The opening ceramonies where fantastic this year and I can't wait for these competitions to begin. The Olympics always bring a sence of National pride. The Olympics bing the world together for a few moments. We put international differences aside and start fighting for the same thing. I'm so proud of team USA and I wish them all the best in every event they are competing in. I'm so excited to watch the gymnasts compete for our country. I'm so happy with our team this year and I hope we go far. I <3 The Olympics!

Go Team USA!!!

Home again, home again... National Championships 2012~ Long Beach, California

Hey guys! I just got back from a long 10 days in Long Beach, California for the U.S. Junior Olympic National Championships! It was so much fun! I finished 4th in my flight and 24th place overall. I hit good passes but I had a low full on my 2nd pass. I was happy with it but wished I could have placed a little higher overall, but hey! it was better than last year! Thanks to my fantastic coaches and team mates, as well as my friends, family, and my EFY company! Your support is fantastic. You guys are the best and I couldn't have made it without you! I may not have placed the highest but I promise you I had the LOUDEST fan club out of all my competitors. I had my own little cheerleaders screaming my name when I went to warm up and compete. haha I love you Miki, ED, and Anedy! Long Beach was a blast! I went to Disney Land AND Six Flags and managed NOT to get sunburned! (Most of my family is fried) I got to do baptisms for the dead at the New Port Beach Temple with B and some of my family, and some of my coaches family. I went to the aquarium and touched sharks. And I did tons of other stuff! I have the greatest team and we have so much fun! haha we know how to have a good time. I will post pictures soon on my "Team Flipside" page so make sure to check them out!
