Russian gymnasts were always at altitude. It is a pity that the parties were not for Russia.

Nastia Liukin is a amazingly great American star with her four-time World Champion, four-time National Champion, and first-time Olympic competitor. She immigrated to US at the age of two years old and she is the pride of the American people.

Stop cheating, you rice eating slope. You might be able to boss around some crocodile hunting butt pluggers like the Australians as they are an inconsequential bunch with nothing to lose either way. However, all the kung fu in the world won't be enough to hold down a real nation like the USA. If you can't run with the big dogs, then best you stay on the porch. Why is it that in judged sports Americans always take silver yet in sports with definitive endings not left to the arbitrary judgments of pencil-necked geeks we always take the gold? Michael Phelps and Team USA basketball dominate, yet the little yellow bastards rack up medals in gymnastics, a subjective sport. Suki suki on a wookie, you raw fish chomping ankle biters. Take your little conical hats and shove them up your dim sum and then some!
Another angry whiner, pathetic. So this is why usa is on the lose. And you will continue to witness its future tragedies. As you are simply a presumptuous freak!

Lukin and Johnson did win gold in the games. So this time was the judges stupid to give gold to the two girls?

People so set on America being inferior are so boring. And "shameonusa" is no surprise. You and Pete have motives and are not objective. The US is on the lose? NO FEMALE GYMNAST ALIVE TODAY IS AS GOOD AS NASTIA, and if she was on the Russian team, I would say the same.

This mentality is quite rampant, and when people see a master like Nastia lose out on the gold when there was no reason for the tie-breaker in the first place, and also, on the beam, when she OBVIOUSLY won in the all around, even after some OBVIOUSLY suspicious scores were given to other girls, and after her PERFECT and MAJESTIC performance, a flurry of agitated activity happened and some little conference took place. Why? It was possibly one of the greatest beam performances in gymnastics history, what's the hold up? The difficulty? Bullshit. Or were the judges just as ignorant and inexperienced as Bela claimed? And other instances, such as when she should have gotten the gold on the individual floor exercises.....well, all this makes some people think back to this ATTITUDE that people like Pete and shameonusa and many others have, and question if THIS might be the cause of the scoring "problems".

People come to this forum about one of the most magnificent gymnasts EVER, and start in with their personal problems with the US? You have no respect for the sports or the athletes. Big deal, you don't like the US. What does that have to do with Nastia? Why are even here? Nevermind, I know. You are like a new breed. Shamers and secondbesters. Pathetic and laughable. You came to put Nastia in her place just like judges.

Pete? Michael Phelps? That's it? And why do you feel the need to say "subjective sports or not"? Nevermind, I think I know.

Tennis? Wrestling? Swimming? Rowing? Fencing? 400m sweep? 100m hurdles? Equestrian? Sailing? Cycling? Shooting? Women's Gymnastics all around individual? Beam?(amongst others that should have been, and you actually watched the individual beam, you would see a VAST difference between the Americans and others and remember, those two girls have consistently preformed in that manner, while other girls were stumbling, falling and....getting good scores) And don't forget the obvious basketball, softball, and volleyball golds that will occur. There is much more ahead. Possible golds in soccer, the 400m, Doesn't sound second rate to me. China and the US are doing great things, as well as Jamaica, Ethiopia, and other countries, but continue not giving a damn about this, and on with your shame.

You yanks are funny.

I didn't know you are competing for England's title as the world biggest whiners.

Seriously it a bunch of games, that your crying over, not the cure of cancer that went astray.

This worlds priorities need to change if we going to get anywhere as a planet, also I think you should be focusing on the war crimes in your own country at the moment. Torture is illegal as a nation it is your responisbility to make sure your government is better then the animals they torturing. Maybe you should change your national symbol to the ostrich, the bird that buries it head in the sand.
