We saw that on NBC, that was the most time they spent away from the US team & it was probably only because there was drama involved. It was nice to see the Brits do so well. The guy with the funky hair was really good. So was the big one I called Bison Boy. lol. (as you can tell I'm not too good with the names) Shame they didn’t get silver but honestly who could have missed the fact that the Japanese athlete did in fact attempt a handstand?? Well all of the judges apparently until the money showed up. Talk about dodgy.Venus wrote: Yesterday was the Men's Team Gymnastics final which was filled with drama after Team GB were initially given the silver medal position but then ended up with bronze after the Japanese team disputed a score but it's still a massive achievement for Team GB given that they weren't favourites to even get a medal.
In retrospect I should have live streamed gymnastics from BBC but I’m not usually in a position to be able to watch uninterrupted during the day and also in past years there hasn’t been an issue with balance, so I didn't anticipate the issue. To be honest I was a bit suspicious from the jump once I heard that NBC had edited out a tribute to terror victims segment from the opening ceremony and their defense of that decision was positively insulting.Venus wrote:A friend of mine has told me about NBC's coverage which is why she's live streaming BBC's coverage instead. Just let me know if you're interested in this as well. I guess it can be hard for TV stations to get the right balance when it comes to showing their own country's athletes and other nations.
