Just like four years ago, Gabby Douglas posted the highest all-around score at the American Cup. There was just one significant difference on Saturday.

“My scores counted!” Douglas said.

Lauren was there. Here’s her LIVE commentary.

Ryohei is the first Japanese man to win this meet since Tsukahara the 1st did so in 1977.

Personally I don’t like meets with so few competitors. When things go badly, as they did today, fans start to ask … “What’s the point?”

Marta says Gabby performs best under pressure. Our Olympic Champion has never looked better on Beam.

Yes. That’s a “Thing Leap” not a “Ring Leap”. 🙂

  1. It’s too bad it’s about name recognition. Because; Maggie I thought should have won. Her vt looked better. I feel her ub was spot on: and should have been higher. Around 14.9. With her bb; I believe, Maggie was really underscored. She was spot on and stuck her landing. Lastly; her floor , I believe could have been higher. Overall; name recognition played the difference. Maggie should have won.
