    Because China was stripped of the bronze medal in Sydney and therefore giving the USA their only medal of those games, wouldn’t that make Dominique Dawes the only female gymnast to medal at 3 consecutive Olympic games?

  2. USA gold, Romania silver, Russia bronze is my team medal prediction for the ladies!

  3. aaron ellis says:

    USA Gold
    Romania Silver
    China or Russia Bronze

  4. aaron ellis says:

    @ Daniel yes and no. Yes she’d be the only Female American gymnast, but Svetlana Khorkina tied her
    Dawes (92, 96 & 00) Bronze, Gold, Bronze
    Khorkina (96, 00 & 04) Silver, Silver, Bronze

  5. Daniel says:

    @ Aaron. Haha of course, how could I have forgotten about Khorkina?! So Dawes would not be the only one but technically she would have been the first though right?

  6. Benjamin says:

    Well what I want is
    Gold-Romania
    Silver-Russia
    Bronze-USA

    But what I think
    Gold-USA/Russia
    Silver-USA/Russia
    bronze Romania
