Rio moments I will never forget

  • Belgium was there with a team for the first time since 1948, and they were gooooood
  • Rebeca Andrade’s Amanar was amazing (especially in podium training) + she kept smiling even after her medal ambitions vanished into thin air
  • Tutya Yilmaz hit beam!
  • the floor routine of Pauline Schäfer made me go ‘wow
  • Gabby and Larisa stayed strong and classy in the face of so much ridiculous hate
  • Nina Derwael was a bars princess
  • our very own Lauren Hopkins worked for NBC
  • the sportsmanship between gymnasts was so lovely to see, high fives and hugs everywhere + sweet messages on social media ♥
  • Hong Un Jong (North Korea) and Lee Eun Ju (South Korea) took a selfie together
  • Italy’s black and white leos
  • team Japan was all smiles and good vibes
  • Eythora did a four-turn combo on floor, and it was glorious
  • Jessica Lopez was so happy to be in the uneven bars final
  • Giulia, Sophie & Sanne on the podium!
  • Hong Un Jong & Rune Hermans went for a more difficult vault

    “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”

  • Ellie Black finished FIFTH
    Jessica Lopez finished SEVENTH
    Asuka Teramoto finished EIGHTH
    Eythora Thorsdottir finished NINTH
    Giulia Steingruber finished TENTH
    Rebeca Andrade finished ELEVENTH
    Nina Derwael finished NINETEENTH
