Confetti. Lots of it.
What's worse is the confetti seemed to fall only on Nastia Liukin after they announced the 2012 Olympic gymnastics team, which Liukin was ousted from after a devastating face-plant during the qualifier.
But the former world champion and Olympic gold medalist still managed a smile as they presented the 2012 team, instead taking her frustration out on the confetti raining down from the sky, like "soil falling over [her] head," as she realized it was the end.
