I have to admit I don't like it. To me, winning a team competition should mean more than three routines. That is one reason why Romania and Russia have usually beat the tar out of the rest of the world as far as Women's gymnastics go. Their teams have always had incredible depth, and they have profited from other countries only having a couple of good all-around gymnasts and having to fill in with not-so-good gymnasts.

It is really tense watching three routines, knowing that all three count. I was so nervous last night before the last rotation. That was so close!

And yes, those Japanese men were clearly the best on high bar. Even the relatively simple giant swings were better. I'm still agog at that last release move. Wasn't he a cutie?!?
