Are we forgetting the time that Mai placed 4th on Fx at 2013 worlds?

Good, because she totally deserved to podium and I\’d much rather forget how she was robbed. #justiceformai

I love her but Produnova\’s booty was for sure on the matt when she landed that first vault.

Was it the Gordie Howe hat trick in hockey that you were thinking about? It\’s when a player gets a goal, an assist, and in a fight in the same game.

Oh Jess. Ferrari was wonderful, but there was no way she was getting 1st or 2nd on floor last year. She qualified in 7th with a hit routine, a half a point behind Jade Carey. On a perfect day, she could have challenged Frags for 3rd but even that’s a stretch.
