I failed to buy into it as soon as he started ripping on the South Korean gymnasts.

I agree with you here. I haven't about Kim Dae-eun's (silver medalist) beef so i don't know what's going on there, but i do think Yang Tae-young (bronze medalist) has a legitimate complaint. Although, from what i've seen/heard this morning, he should be raking his coach over the coals for not catching it during the competition.

(Apparently, the US coach did protest a few starting values during the competition and other coaches may have, too. I haven't yet heard why the South Korean coach didn't in this case.)

It's a crying shame for all involved.

But Svetlana and Gary do need to wipe their noses and move on. Grow up, quit blaming others for your losses and find a more positive way to gain attention.

(On that note, it was great to see Gary's do so well in the 50m free yesterday.)
