My husband and I were discussing our frustration with delays in posting results online. We can’t understand how something that seems as simple and straightforward as the timely uploading of a results file is not a priority.

It particularly stands out at an event such as Nationals. It reflects poorly on the organizers, even if everything else involved with running the competition went like clockwork.

Wow! What a comeback for Clark… 5 medals and the highest AA total of the year for juniors yesterday. Olsen should start working on her execution because she was beaten yestersay even without a fall…

The women’s floor final judging seemed off. One of the best routines was off the podium. Lots of splats in there too.

Event organizers still haven’t posted the WAG 13-15 Open scores. Somebody put up MAG High Bar scores there instead.

Chiarelli was cheated out of a floor medal. Judges cheated the entire night and just gave the scores to the gymnasts they wanted to win.

The whole Canadian Nationals was a joke.
