Men's individual foil (2 Chinese in quarters)

So a silver medal for the royal family!

I watched Hancock win the skeet gold earlier. What an amazing shot.

I'll update this thread after every rotation in the gymnastics final. USA currently warming up on the vault.

Ugh. I hate this stupid live stream. McKayla just went on vault, supposedly did her best ever, but of course it pauses before she goes and repeats the last few seconds and catches back up by skipping her entire vault. All I get to see his her ready stance and then coming off the mat looking excited. Awesome.

Great start for the US. 48.132 on vault.

Jordyn Wieber - 15.933
Gabby Douglas - 15. 966
McKayla Maroney - 16.233

That's what I like to hear!

Second Russian routine screws up tumbling pass!!

Second Russian scores a 12.466 after a terrible floor routine. USA doesn't need to do much now!!

And a fall on the last pass from the last Russian...USA, barring a huge screwup, will be gold medalists...

The US needs to score 40.301 points to win.

Is that, you know, hard?

15.066 for Gabby Douglas...Wieber and Raisman need to average 12.617 for gold.

No.

They need to average about 13.5 points per routine and considering they are shooting for somewhere in the 14.5-15.5 area, they would have to mess up as badly as the Russians did on floor to get the minimum scores.

Wieber KILLS IT with a 15.000 on floor. It won't be long now!!

She did so well! I was so excited for her after her disappointment the other day.

Raisman hits with a 15.3!! Gold for USA!!

Aly just made me tear up at the end there when she finished.

Rotation 4: floor.

Douglas - 15.066
Wieber - 15.000
Raisman - 15.300
Total: 45.366

GOLD - USA - 183.596
SILVER - Russia - 178.530
BRONZE - Romania - 176.414

A HUGE WIN for the USA. Winning by 5 points is unheard of.

AWESOME!

These gymnasts did not miss a beat today. Lowest score was a 14.666 (avg was 14.600) from Wieber on bars; highest was Maroney's vault of 16.233 (avg was 14.895).

Let's hope this carries on to Thursday's all-around.

The US scored highest on vault (by 1.766), third highest on bars (Russia, China), highest on beam (by .05), and highest on floor (by .666). An overall dominating performance.

Does that mean we don't need spoiler tags anymore? :D

It would seem that the majority of us have realized the only way to roll this Olympics is live, so now we are free to do it unencumbered. :yes:

Nathan Adrian has looked great so far through these Olympics.

Gold and an Olympic record for Schmitt!! Great race!
