The way NBC portrayed the Russian gymnasts pissed me off. Have a bit of respect for them instead of skewing their behaviour to look bitchy and unsportsmanlike. And I hate that people think it's terrible of the girls to cry after getting the silver. These are young girls that have worked their whole lives for this one goal. They're in the gym 8 hours a day. It's doubtful they'll ever get a chance at an Olympic gold medal again. So what if they cry as soon as they realize their lifelong dream is gone? It's a hard pill to swallow. I would cry too. The problem is the cameras being stuck in their face trying to capture a reaction for drama.
Also, immediately after the competition, both Komova and Mustafina gave interviews congratulating Gabby was and talking how she deserved the win. Same thing for the team competition. They talked about how disappointed they were in themselves but were ultra gracious toward the Americans. But that doesn't fit with the diva-Russian-bitches meme NBC has going.
