I know there is a separate Olympics thread, but IMO the premier event of every Olympic games deserves it's own thread. The 2012 United States women's gymnastic team members are (in order based on the picture posted):
Here is the NBC television schedule (since everything is going to be tape-delayed, I assume everyone is smart enough to NOT post results in this thread until they're aired by NBC. But just in case, NO SPOILERS, PEOPLE!). Times represent when NBC's coverage starts, not necessarily when they'll air the event.
Sunday, July 29 - Team qualification; 7pm EST
Tuesday, July 31 - Team finals; 8pm EST
Thursday, August 2 - All-around final; 8pm EST
Sunday, August 5 - Vault final; 7pm EST
Monday, August 6 - Uneven bars final; 8pm EST
Tuesday, August 7 - Balance beam and floor exercise finals; 8pm EST
This team is the favorite to win gold. On paper, they're amazing. Jordyn Wieber is the reigning all-around world champion and beam bronze medalist, Aly Raisman earned the bronze on the floor exercise, while McKayla Maroney is the vault champion. They're all young, however. Kyla Ross is only 15, while Wieber, Maroney and Gabby Douglas are 16. Raisman is the veteran of the team at 18. In order to win the gold, they'll have to get over the fact that billions of people will be watching them in one of the biggest sporting events in the world. I'm really excited to see how they do, and excited to post ITT with other gymnastics fans!
I know, TL;DR, but I'm really pumped!
I KNOW SOME PEOPLE WILL WANT TO DISCUSS THE RESULTS BEFORE THE NBC COVERAGE. DO NOT POST THEM IN THIS THREAD. FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE RESULTS BEFORE THE NBC COVERAGE, POST IN THE MAIN OLYMPICS THREAD, OKAY!?

Who's the hottest of the bunch? Need pictures in sexy gymnastics outfits please
Wish I was still 14 while watching the gymnasts. I love gymnastics and wish the girls weren't so young.
Said the oldest was 18
Thanks for starting this GB, i would forget like the trials.
Gabby's best event is on my birthday, woot!! Gotta be a good sign.
No prob. I knew you'd be ITT eventually :)
More candids of the team from London.
Jesus, looks like we are using the chinese tech... 10 year olds.
A few more. That Olympic mascot is a huge WTF.
Who is 18?
Even for a gymnast, Gabby is tiny!
The Phelps pic is cute, you know they had to be out of their minds when they met him.
What the hell is that thing?
All of the information you need to figure this out is ITT.
God you're lazy.

Always admired these little chics for the insane things they do, my favorite sport as a whole to watch at the games. First Olympics I was old enough to really appreciate was the Shannon Miller squad in 96', loved me some Miller when I was 17.
I really liked Shannon, too. She actually won five medals in the 1992 Barcelona games, as well. She finally got her individual gold in 1996 on the beam event finals. I cried.
She was talented, but her hair is what stands out in my memory.
How old is the average Chinese girl this year? I remember in 08 they all looked like they were 8 years old. Wasn't there a big stink because there is an age floor for the Olympics and everyone thought that they were to young for those games? I don't know dick about gymnastics but it's amazing what those people do honestly.
It's a big penis and it's looking at you.
I would let them lock me away for....2 years for one night with that group of girls.
Happy days are here again!!!!
"Premier" event? GAG!
