SHE WAS ROBBED!

Today, we take on the most dramatic, heinous, unforgettable robberies in gymnastics history and declare who really should have won that gold (or bronze).

  • The 1992 Olympic All-Around: Was Shannon robbed???
  • The 1988 Olympic All-Around: Was Silivas robbed???
  • Un-American Heresy: We reassess the 1984 Olympic final and 2011 worlds all-around
  • By Why Would I Be Second? We bring in the CSI team to pick apart the 2008 Olympic bars final, with shocking results
  • Not Guilty: We take on a famous Olympic controversy in which there is actually no hint of robbery anywhere
  • Deep Cuts: The 1996 vault final, the 1997 beam final, the 1980 beam final, and other moments we feel too strongly about
  • Pickpockets and Pirates: Robbery through tie breaks, decimals, and other things out of the judges hands
