Shawn Johnson got her gold yesterday on the balance beam with a winning score of 16.225. In the last event for the women, she went out and gave a stellar performance to get her a gold medal to go along with her three silvers. Her teammate Nastia Liukin got the silver. The two medals put the USA team above the Chinese team with 8 medals to 6 medals. Congratulations ladies.



Also, Jonathan Horton from Houston took the silver medal yesterday in the high bar competition. He was just barely edged out by China's Zou Kai. A little spark plug of his own, Jonathan flew around the bars and put on a spectacular routine, but the new scoring system gave the edge to Zou because his routine had slightly more difficult elements.

Now we move on to a lot of the team sports such baseball, basketball, softball, volleyball and the like that have now moved out of their preliminary rounds. There is also a bit of track and field taking place. The USA men's team has already provided one sweep in the 400-meter hurdles. There's less than a week left, but there is still a lot of action to come.

Dude, you really should wait until after the competitions have aired on tv locally before posting details. Otherwise we're going to have to stop reading the blog for the rest of the week.
