Jiang's performance on the FX finals  

Jiang Yuyuan did very well on the FX and she looked like she was really enjoying it. She posted a score of 15.350, which would've been good for a medal two nights ago but was a fourth place result tonight.

It was sad because she didn't qualify for any other event and will thus go home without an individual medal. :(

Gold went to Sandra Izbasa from Romania, who put in a thrilling routine with near-flawless execution. Silver belongs to Shawn Johnson -again- and finally, Nastia Liukin claimed bronze.

I really would like to see Jiang Yuyuan, and the rest of the team, stick around for another four years and compete again in London.

She did a good job.

Well Yuyuan's certainly young enough to compete again in London. She might even be the new Cheng Fei by then. =)

I hope so! I'm sure we'll be able to see her at a few events before she hangs up her leo, either way. :)

I was the most captivated by her that night ♥ Sandra was technically perfect but Yuyuan had so much personality and flair and just that IT factor, it was adorable and so much more fun to watch.

I PRAY that she's back in 2012 - I'll have another reason to watch the Olympics again!

Well that's why I started the community! When casual fans (or "once every four years fan") have forgotten, we will remember and maybe remind her that she still has fans :)
