    theres a thread about the biggest upset, so I'll add my pick for the best part.

    The best part of the olympics was a chinese trampolinist named Dong Dong.

    I was up until the wee hours of the night last night watching the mens Volleyball (I'm a big fan and player of the sport so that's probably why) and I was probably waking my neighbors with my screems of frustration and joy. What an intense game...

    I've really gotten into it this olympics... and I was awake watching the end with you!

    Best moment for me, though, would have to be...well I don't know, but probably something involving Nastia Liukin.

    On a completely related note, some documents were discovered placing 3 of the Chinese gymnists' births in 1994, though their passports said 1992. This makes them too young to be eligible to compete, if their found to be ineligible after the investigation, China's team gold medal as well as any individual medals the 3 girls won will be stripped away.

    I watched them announce that too... I was doing the math on her and the china's uneven bars and the way they settle tie breakers seems to give the advantage to the least consistant performer... For excample let's say these were their scores after they took the top and bottom scores off...

    Naustia: Kexin He:
    200....300
    100....100
    100....100
    100....50
    100....50

    Averaging both you get: 120

    Now from what they are saying if they are still tied after that they take off the their next lowest point!

    Naustia: Kexin He:
    200....300
    100....100
    100....100
    100....50

    Now if you average them... Naustia:125, Kexin He: 137.5

    But wouldn't you rather have a score like Naustia's rather than Kexin's? Honestly it seems that they should remove the next highest and lowest number then average again.
