Not to gloat, but ... THE USA IS BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE ON THE PLANET IN WOMEN'S GYMNASTICS!!!!

The U.S. women's gymnastics team didn't just win GOLD in the team competition ... they CRUSHED the competition ... slaughtering Russia by a whole 5 points.

Just to compare, China beat the US back in 2008 by 2ish points ... in what was then considered to be a pretty dominant performance. So, 5 points is HUUUUUGE.

It's a big deal ... the team -- made up of Jordyn Wieber, Gabrielle Douglas, Alexandra Raisman, Kyla Ross, and McKayla Maroney -- was favored to win ... and they didn't disappoint, scoring 183.596 today. Russia came in at 178.5 (suck it).

Romania won bronze.

The last gold medal was won at the Atlanta Games in 1996 -- with the team of Amanda Borden, Amy Chow, Dominique Dawes, Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Jaycie Phelps ... and of course ... Olympic hero Kerri Strug.



It's a beautiful day for America. Now excuse us while we set off some fireworks, wrap ourselves in the Declaration of Independence, and drive our Chevy into the sunset.

Love the hard working athletes, hate the arrogance. I wonder if when other countries win, they write such pompous praise? Lets ask China.

Wanted to watch!    

What happen to a Spoiler alert! Many people wanted to watch this without knowing when they get home from work. A little courtesy for your viewers/readers would be nice.

GO USA. #1in Gymnastics and still #1 in debt.

The total US public debt load was approximately $14.1 trillion.

How much of this money is owed to China?

As of December/2010, the United States owed China $1.164 trillion

Maybe these gymnasts can sell theri medals and give the money to the US gov't?????.


Hohohohohoh hehehehe.........

WHY are you guys spoiling it for everyone??!!!!!!! You know damn well that this doesn't air until tonite and that some people would rather NOT know the outcome ahead of time???? At least post a "spoiler alert" although now it's too late. Posting that result was a total douche bag move.
