Would have loved for Brazilian Flvia Saraiva to have gotten a medal on the beam.

Honestly, if Simone wasn't there, I think Aly would have walked away with a huge chunk of medals. (Gold Team, Gold All Around, at least a medal on beam, Gold Floor..maybe a medal on a vault.) She was really at her peak this olympics, IMO.

Me too. She is the cutest little thing ever.

Also, I love the other Brazilian's floor routine. (The one that was in the all around)

Lauren is the name she was born with. She probably prefers Laurie because it's more youthful, like she is.

Is it Gabby Douglas? Would you be pissed off to see it written as Gabrielle?
Is it Aly Raisman? Would you be pissed off to see it written as Alexandra? I bet you would.


Actually it's I didn't know Laurie was not her given name, so now that I know, I don't have a problem with it at all. I thought it was a typo that was never fixed, that is why it bugged me.

Aly Raisman only competes one vault so she isn't eligible for vault finals.

Seems like you just made his point. They don't write Alexandra or Gabrielle, but they write Lauren.


What? Her point was they should stop using "Lauren" because it's not her name. It is her name. Maybe her nickname isn't as established as the others, but you should never be surprised or bothered if anyone uses a proper name over a nickname.


First off I am a male not a female. And I don't have a problem nor am I bothered if an organization, announcer, media, coach or any other person refers to person by their given name, the problem is I thought her given name was Laurie and Lauren was a typo.

Lauren Hernandez gonna be on Dancing With the Stars.
Gotta figure she's the early favorite to win, but I'm not too crazy about her partner, Val.
Has he ever won it?
