I woke up around 9:30am, fed Gumby, and made my breakfast. I turned on the television to notice that the Olympics will start at 10am. I turned on the computer and entered IMVU to receive the Day 2 Olympic gift, which is three Greek column podium or pedestals, where the winner, 1st runner-up and 2nd runner-up will stand on for acknowledgement and recognition. The Day 1 gift was a short track field with three rows for running. After placing these gifts at different IMVU homes, I closed my IMVU page to check on other things.
Today’s Olympic Games started out with a volleyball match, which I am not really into. My mother, as well as a couple of cousins is into volleyball. My mother often brags that she was a professional volleyball athlete when she was a teenager. By 11am, it was a women’s cycling race in the streets of Rio, where there is herd of women cycling together, and a few seem to be leading the whole group. It is not yet clear who will pop out and win, as they all near the finish line.
While browsing on Facebook, I noticed that Sunday, August 7th is National Sister Day, which doesn’t apply to me because I don’t have a sister. I just have two brothers.
Women gymnastic floor dancing starts out with USA’s Gabby Douglas and Laurie Hernandez. Simone Biles scored 15.733. Aly Raisman performs next, and she scored 15.578. Russia’s Oskana C. performed vault jump, and Alyiha performed gymnastics floor dancing. Daria S. performed on the bars. Romania is next. Catalina P. performed on the beam. USA’s Laurie, Gabby, Aly R., and Simone took turns on the vault. The top 8 will go to the finals. I agree that Simone seems the best out of the USA gymnasts because she is very fast and strong, for 4 ft. 8 in girl. Next is the Brazil gymnasts. Brazil’s Flavia performed on the beam, and I think she did a good job. She also flips over a vault. Jade B. takes her turn on the vault. And, Rebeca A. also flips over a vault for Brazil.
Great Britain’s Elle D. messes up and falls after flipping over the vault, but she tries again, although she looked dazed. It looked painful because it looked like she fell on her neck. Her sister, Becky, is also on the Great Britain gymnastic team.
USA’s Aly Raisman, Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, and Madison K. performed on the bars, before performing on the balancing beam. Gabby performed first, before Aly Raisman, Laurie Hernandez, and Simone Biles. Based on their scores, Simone, Aly and Gabby are the top three for USA. Team USA posed for photographers as well as Aly and Simone were interviewed. I thought Madison was good, too.
