1. I got my 18th student today, another boy. He seems sweet, but really struggled with the work we did today. I am concerned.
2. Gabby Douglas did not medal on the uneven bars. She would have had to be perfect to win, as her start value is a lot less than many of the other girls. Russia’s Aliya Mustafina won the gold. She did a great job, but I feel like she is a bit of a diva. I was rooting for Beth Tweddle from Britain, who came away with the bronze.
3. Kirani James won the gold in the 400 meters- getting the first Olympic medal for the country of Grenada. I bet the Granadians are partying tonight!!!
