I haven\’t listened to the podcast yet but I am living for this title
Two storybook Olympic moment…although one is not a happy ending
First the good.
Fabian winning HB gold…having an Olympic career where he upgraded each time! Bronze in 2008, Silver in 2012 and Gold in 2016. Those are also his ONLY Olympic medals. When does something like that ever happen…NEVER!!!
Then the bad.
Vanessa Ferrari finishing 4th in the FX Final AGAIN. She’s finished 4th in 2012 to Mustafina (who didn’t need another medal) by losing a tie-breaker.
She stays in 4 more years, wins a WC FX Silver ,makes the 2016 FX Final, goes up last (with the door open to medal), hits the first 3 passes…and just when you think she might get a Beth Tweddle moment…she takes 2 steps back on her double pike dismount and finishes in 4th…again.
Just listened. Ayelén Tarabini is sponsored by Nike. I tweeted a link to you from her account.
Wouldn’t she be at least the 4th Nike gymnast? Shawn, Gabby, and Simone being the first 3?
