Olympic Judging

I'm disappointed with the Olympic judging in gymnastics.

If a gymnast deserves a high score then they should get one, but when a gymnast makes obvious mistakes that even a lay person like me can recognize, they should not receive a high score.

This is what seems to be happening with the Chinese gymnasts. Again, I don't want to begrudge anybody who is actually performing well but in the case of the women's vault and the uneven bars, there was a clear bias toward the Chinese gold medalists.

Not fair.

To all of Dawn's friends .
I have just returned from visiting Dawn in the hospital & she asked me to thank you all for your prayers & kind thoughts which are lifting her spirits. She is still under the weather from her treatment & is not able to communicate with you yet but hopefully she will be well enough soon to do so.
Thank you so much.
