We've watched this so many times! It has to be one of the greatest moments of athleticism in this Olympics! The way she stuck that landing is simply jaw-dropping...
And speaking of jaw-dropping...look at this judge's face lol...
It's nice when the mathematics works out so that a specialist gets selected to go to the Olympics.
Usually when a country is aiming for team gold, they only pick gymnasts that are "reasonably good in all events" as opposed to "extremely good in one event".
It would be nice if they changed the rules to allow specialists to try to compete for their best event even if they don't fit into the team calculations. As it stands now, many great specialists never get to attend the Olympics, and the apparatus finals are much poorer for it.
(Imagine what the 100 meter sprints would be like if only competent decathletes/heptathletes were selected to participate in Olympic track and field events.)
Anyway, speaking of McKayla Maroney and apparatus finals, the women's vault finals are today (Sunday), and she'll be competing in that event.
Also, Gabby Douglas is in the uneven bars finals on Monday.
And on Tuesday, Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman are in the balance beam finals. And Jordyn Wieber and Aly Raisman are in the floor exercise finals.
How much any of this will make NBC's abysmal coverage is another question though. It might be worth trying to catch it even if they don't bother to put it on TV.
