Since this POST something very interesting took place. More screwy judging....
Great Britain was originally named the silver medalist, but Japan filed an inquiry regarding Kohei Uchimura's pommel horse score. Lo and behold, 15 minutes after the competition, the medal order was changed with Japan zooming into the Silver slot and Britain dropped to bronze.
Ukraine dropped out of the medal race into fourth place and the U.S remained in fifth.
Dang it. Here is my ORIGINAL POST!
China beat the United States today for the Olympic gold medal in men’s team gymnastics.
It is the second time in a row that the Chinese have won the Gold in this coveted sport.
Britain took the team silver medal, the first time the British men's team has medaled since 1912, and the boys from the Ukraine took home the bronze.
The Japanese came in FOURTH and the United States dropped back to FIFTH. WTH?
