Let's talk about Gabby Doulgas for a minute and her "tweaked ankle." Some people say she balked on her vault. This doesn't look like a baulk to me; it's more like she just missed the vault!

And here was the aftermath...

That doesn't look very "tweaked"; it looks legitimately injured! I hope it won't last.
All in all, the women did fantastically though. Although there were a few falls in event finals, the ladies did nicely in the end. ... And I got to see Ohashi's beam in HD.
Other than the US, who was I impressed with?
Peng Peng of course, who rocked the hell out of this meet earning multiple medals and a fantastic all around score.
12 year old Charlotte Sullivan of New Zealand who had an adorable floor and qualified to Balance Beam Finals, even if she struggled there. I'm excited to see this team blossom.
Victoria Moors whose floor is mesmerizing. I'm so excited to see her in London. She should make floor finals there.
