I -- thank -- for -- outside Olympic park in London welcome to this inside -- presented by city at -- opening joined by and asked they get past sixteen as we start. Winding down in -- coverage. Dominique Dawes box but -- bill -- And we have an exciting day today Gabby -- let's not the only American going on -- two -- looks -- but Alley nice but leading with three medals. The most of all the American women let's start with the gold medal or performance she. I was so proud of Alley into this competence in the way that she should in this competition she was the reigning world champion on floor. During the -- lives in the finals and all around competition she had struggled on that particular -- -- -- I merely a first come link actually is not adding that front lay out after. Her double Arabian in this country put it back -- thank goodness and I really think that helped again atop the podium and half that -- But the way that -- an Olympic. And she ended the way that she started which was magnificently she struggled a little bit in the middle there in the individual all around so. This little redemption and she used the word redemption today she felt redeemed from her opportunity or she knocked out Jordan Weaver to go to the all around and did not perform as well as you want. Talked about before. -- me started about the judging and made it up controversy there in terms of the Olympic channel. Of judges we releasing got a little bit early on. We didn't see it today when it comes Alley with a bronze medal performance can you explain a little bit about what happened she got the brown. Well first we thought that she'd finished fourth and she thought she'd finished fourth and then her for coach put in a request -- view. And the way this works is -- actually go to a frame by frame camera on the judges are forced to look at it they they can reevaluate that you reevaluate the typical three rate rating. And that Barbara they've they've looked at is that how you -- where -- -- -- more typical that we thought. She tied for third in the tiebreaker was execution all the sudden she's America she's that she's got bronze. Yeah opposite of what happened. Right. It was and it was a relief you know. Because many times judges things aren't you always kind of put the computer at -- that the amount. Greens are not new but what actually did like. Chart. Yet. USA gymnastics officials trying to explain reporters it's very complicated process that there's a limited number that they can do inquiries per event. And they charge I think it's 500000. -- out of the first -- I think thousand the next thing I thought they weren't sure and if you're wrong if it doesn't go your way you both money. That's is carrying it right but I guess you going to be a little -- judicious about when you're going to use here a year you where you're going use those challenges. -- -- I mean this is one adult that I think our hearts all kind of go out what we talked about this Olympic experience for her in the face of women's gymnastics. On the floor today kind of indicative of what's been going with. Hot and -- Very much just the disappointing performance at Jordan you know she was Scotland that -- this competition very solid throughout the year. Everyone was thinking that she was gonna be America's sweetheart she ended on the floor exercise I thought with a little chance to -- herself. I getting on the podium as she did -- until she she could do would've been on the podium she started off slowly pull out. It had a problem with the early ending this her second pummeling -- -- Went out of bounds on that and it was over and you could tell in her face that -- defeated team new. Apparently taking her over she there's a seventh out of eight she Connors is Olympics as the face of USA gymnastics and she leaves as its greatest disappointment. What about. I hate it can Segway from thereby getting Douglas and it's almost. What a crazy rollercoaster the last few days -- same thing we kind of picked up where we left off with -- in terms of struggling. I you're going to make blatant -- technique or about just the emotional the mental fatigue she must be point -- -- you know it athlete ever when it come up with. Aces and think why we did not -- but the thing is you can tell on any of these girls bases not just get that many of these fitness. That they were emotionally drained they were physically drained mentally drained and I really think for the Americans. Winning takes a lot out of winning training. And -- went in the team who won an all around and made history and then on top of that -- -- ours at the rough outing an individual that I haven't bars. And it just really showed and -- -- off an apparatus was tough to see but the thing is. When I spoke with her today she's it's going to be in the history books at the end of the day that's what -- Are gonna remember that was just a struggle there are some personal things through that were there were drags about the mud so it's been a really exhausting week. Article you said this was a young lady got her drink at every -- this dream. And understandably didn't handle it as well as she -- -- -- it. It it got to protect reward down and Marcus and I hope she comes back and does it again and maybe hit a little better next. Actually handled it fine you know -- or part of him that perhaps are not the best I could tell on that. I think I handled it with class. I let a let her mom and that it's been very classy very composed and I think it has been doing an other one thing I likely be -- today is. Every now and then you know people make mistakes and I think with what she's saying but she's like sometimes -- -- -- some time -- time and today was. The. -- be interesting to talk to her in about four more years to really thought -- you reflect back on this experience yes what sticks out most of her interest I'd look up -- Thank you you know I think that not enough thank you and thank you for watching that's going to do it for this inside -- presented by city for built for dominate got -- we'll see next sent.
