So what does everyone think about the new format for the gymnastics team events -- only having three people go on each piece of equipment, so there's no safety net, no score to drop? The commentators argued that the new format rewarded those who played it safe rather than the risk-takers, but I have to say, it seemed like the Japanese went for it with some difficult moves and were rewarded.

I have to admit it made last night very nerve-wracking knowing that every score counted. One big mistake -- see Rom on the high bar -- and you lose a lead in an instant. Two+ big mistakes and you end up like the Chinese- gold in Sydney, but 5th in Athens.

I hope the ladies do well tonight.
