Anna Li, in 12th place entering today’s round, put up a stunning and difficult uneven bars routine that left her grinning from ear to ear. She scored a 15.55 on it, the highest score so far today.
… though Brenna Dowell just gave her a bit of a run. Nope, 14.5.
Yikes, Nastia Liuken, a huge crowd favorite, just missed her grip on the uneven bars and did a bellyflop on the mat. Ouch.
Jordyn Wieber, meanwhile, had the shakes on the balance beam, and scored a 14.9. No such problem for Alicia Sacramone, who was solid and steady all the way.
