That's my hardest thing. I see girls do what I think is perfect and they get like 1.2 in deductions and then someone screws up a lot and doesn't get hit as hard. The sport is so broken.

You add different points for different elements. The execution score is related to how well you perform, it is different.
And yeah, the scoring system is a disgrace nowadays.

I loved how the crowd reacted!

I get that part, it's just how they score the execution part that baffles me. Seems to be no consistency or reasoning.

No love for Spain's first gold and Finland's first medal in women's windsurfing.

You and most people following gymnastics at this olympics, believe me.

Anyway, even if (with a big if here) the US gymnast deserves to be in front of the Romanian one, the difference in scores is just too big.

Right, so all this stuff goes down, where scores aren't known and calculated incorrectly. Everyone complains because they don't understand it (nor does anyone). It makes it really hard to watch to me.

Ok I have to give it to you now... 5-12-7 is disappointing, especially considering Germany usually starts better than they finish at olympic games. A medal at any of the team sports looks unlikely.

It seems any olympic team I cheer for is destined to fall one step short of winning. Spain in Athens 3-11-5, in Beijing 5-10-3, here 1-4-1...

They made it really hard to understand for the general public.
The worse is for the gymnasts that come from countries with no tradition. Like the German one in vault who should have gotten the bronze medal.

Since 1984 and for the last time. It will be replaced by kitesurfing in Rio after a very controversial vote at the international sailing federation (or the IOC, can't remember).

They call it RX:S here though.

Trott gets the 21st gold medal for Britain. Brilliant. Only 8 golds behind the USA now, not bad at all.
