Gabby Douglas & Aly Raisman: Balance Beam Finals Results!

U.S. Women’s Gymnastics Team mates Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman compete during the Artistic Gymnastics Women’s Balance Beam final on Day 11 of the 2012 Summer Olympics at North Greenwich Arena on Tuesday (August 7) in London, England.

Gabby, 16, had a rough time on the beam and ended up falling off during her routine, though she was able to catch her fall and get back up. She finished in seventh place.

After a review of her score following an appeal, Aly ended up in third place and went home with the bronze medal!

China picked up the gold and silver, going to Deng Linlin and Sui Lu, respectively.

    I just can’t believe what happened. I just can’t believe Catalina Ponor from Romania got stolen by Raisman exactly at the end. Of course that USA couldn’t agree that their 2 participants lost and cam home without any medal. I am so disappointed. I simply can’t believe that Alexandra’s coach is a ROMANIAN. Shame on you and one the judges that clearly favorite USA. So sad, congratulation anyway to China.

    Get 'em next time Gabby... Says:

    I can see you are very talented — we can’t win them all. You are 16 and you will perfect your craft even more. Stay focus, Gabby. Nice job, Aly. As a gymnastic enthusiast, it was the right call — you are deserving of the bronze. As for the judges, you guys need to do a better job to avoid such mistakes that can be so devastating and cruel.

    The judges clearly favorite the USA? How many times have calls gone against the US in all of the Olympic games? Especially with Nastia and the uneven bars at the last Olympics?

    Catalina from Romania and Aly from USA had the same score. I know the rules, but it was a bit unfair because Catalina had a bigger difficulty. In my opinion, they should both get the bronze.

    Come on, let’s not make this a “who deserved what” and “the judges have favorites” war. Sometimes judges are too harsh, make mistakes, and over- or underscore. It’s just how things are. The girls all tried their best and made their coaches, families, friends, and countries proud. Congratulations to Aly Raisman, Deng LinLin, and Sui Lu for making the top three.

    Huh... think again. Says:

    Clearly, you need to check that difficulty level and execution again –and the rules accordingly. Twenty plus years watching and my nephews are in gymnastics — their coaches are Russian, we agree with the call. The judges are the ones to blame for this one..for not making the right call from the beginning or at least waiting, instead they break a girl’s heart. Shame on the judges.

    Congrats to Team USA for a great job and hard work for so long.
    Bravo.
    Gabby is flawless. There is nothing anyone can say about this girl.
    She is a shining star and an awesome superstar.

    Raisman-cow-face. You’re just a loser!

    Silly... Says:

    @123: No need for insults. While you were wasting your time insulting a girl, she was busy winning — a gold medal for that matter.

    For people complaining about tie-breaking, Aly lost out on another medal when she was tied for third earlier this week. This time, she won. That’s the way the cookie crumbles. Spoiler alert, spoiler alert: Aly also won gold today on floor exercise. Congrats, Aly!

    if the Romanians in the stands here in London have their way this will not be the end. these people intend to appeal and keep appealing until Ponor is given her bronze medal. Romania, they say, will not allow the United States to get away with this. i’m an American so i wish i could say Aly deserves the silver but she doesn’t.

    She got the bronze on beam on the same tiebreaker that she lost the all-around bronze on….i don’t see how that would be unfair….if anything they should give them both bronze

    eva Says:

    Why USA can’t admit they are not the best? Catalina Ponor was stolen at beam. Everybody saw, nobody could do nothing for Romania which is an insignifiant country and has no power. Raisman was so slowly at the floor, but Catalina Ponor was the best. Ponor deserved gold at floor.
    Shame on you, USA coach, not to recognize somebody can be better than you! Shame on you Mihai ! You were born in Romania and learned all about gymnastic in Romania. How can you live peacefully?

    Catalina Ponor was the best imo!

    Mike Says:

    @Laura: Please – both Raisman and Douglas won team and individual gold medals, so even without a beam medal, “lost and cam home without any medal” is inaccurate.

    As Afanaseva (who placed 5th in the beam) said that ruthlessness in sports is not wrong. If the challenge was not valid, it would have been refused.

    What I don’t like is the tie-breaker. If you have the same final score, you should get the same medal. So that means an extra bronze sometimes. At least three times, we saw tie-breakers. Both Raisman and Ponor should have received the Bronze.

    Gymnastics is my favorite event at the Olympics and this year Team USA has really been at the forefront of the sport. Even though Gabby and Jordan didn’t medal they have nothing to be ashamed of. They’ve done fantastic this year and all of us are proud of them and the entire team. Aly did an amazing job today getting the gold on the floor. There are thousands of hours of coverage and several channels included in the Olympics coverage so finding what you’re looking for can be really hard. I just recently upgraded to the Hopper which comes with three tuners and 2,000 hours of recording time available. Now I can record each event and I don’t have to stress out about having enough space for all the sports I want to see. I’m glad I followed my Dish co-worker’s advice: the Hopper has been a huge time saver. The saddest news coming from the gymnastics team is that Jordyn has a possible stress fracture. I hope she gets better soon and that she’ll be able to compete in the 2016 Games. Go Team USA!
