I've been wondering about this for a long time, what exactly was Sveta's mistake during her routine in the bars event final in Athens... I've seen the video of the routine but I still don't get it. Can someone explain please?

I like svet, until the rude comments she made about Carly Patterson taking home the gold. Thought a gymnast of her status would have more class. Just an opinion though.

I love rude comments and fights, gives the sport a little more juice. No...I'm kidding, that was pretty annoying.

Some comments can be fun, but I think there are times and places for them. Not an Olympic games. And NOT to the AMERICANS....... lol our home team
