So the internet is in a tizzy over the rather young Ryan Wieber!
It's been quite a week for U.S. gymnast Jordyn Wieber. First, the favorite to win the all-around title missed qualification and had her disappointment broadcast throughout America. Then things took a positive turn last night and the U.S. women took gold for the first time since 1996.
As expected, in the women's gymnastics preliminaries, the United States topped the field. Less expectedly, the margin was only 1.4 points.
If you listen to USA Gymnastics and NBC, it's one of the most important Olympic tune-ups. If you listen to the rest of the world, it's a glorified showcase for American athletes. So maybe it's fitting that the American Cup's highest-scoring female gymnast wasn't even entered in the competition.
