A few awesome flips, a little controversy, and one annoyed spectator all add up to a night the American gymnast won't soon forget. Oh and of course there was also the return of Aly's crazy, awesome parents.
Yesterday Aly Raismain competed in the finals of both the balance beam and the floor exercise. She got started on the beam.
She did well...
But her routine was not without its faults.
When her score of 14.966 came in (good for 4th place), the announcers were shocked. It turns out for her "starting difficulty" score the judges gave her only a 6.2.
Former Olympic gold medalist Shannon Miller said that Raisman's routine is usually considered at least a 6.4 or 6.5.
