Now that gymnastics in Beijing is in the books, it's time to take stock on an eventful competition. We had triumphant performances, a combined eight medals for the U.S. women, an age controversy with the Chinese team and a scoring saga in which American Nastia Liukin lost the gold even though she had the same score as the gold medalist.
Sports Illustrated's E.M. Swift says the IOC should be ashamed for not investigating the ages of the Chinese gymnasts and needs to level the playing field.
After all is said and done, what will you remember most about the gymnastics competition? Will a dark cloud hang over the sport? Or is controversy just inherent in gymnastics?
What are your other thoughts/impressions on the U.S. team, the Chinese, the age controversy and the scoring?
