Jordyn Weiber tossed out of All-Around Gymnastics Final due to an idiotic "two-per country" rule; Give me a break
My HEART goes out to Jordyn Weiber tonight..
Because of a stupid "two-per country rule" (each team in the Olympics can only advance two athletes to the All-Around competition in Gymnastics) one of the GREATEST athletes in the Summer Olympics has been denied the opportunity to make her GOLD MEDAL dreams COME TRUE in the ALL AROUND Gymnastics competition.
Wait a minute. More screwy rules for the Olympics. Jordyn won the right to be in the FINALS, but a horrific rule has left her in tears.
Why do we ALLOW this to take place in our WORLD OLYMPICS. This makes NO sense.
USA Golden Gals "In Waiting" Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas are both in the OVERALL FINALS, and Jordan can only watch helplessly.
Just over two tenths of a point separated Wieber from Douglas, the second qualifier. Confused. Just watch NBC and see for yourself what takes place.
What do you think? Did JORDYN get ROBBED?
Does this rule need to be axed? Why do we RECOGNIZE THESE RULES as BEING OUT OF TOUCH with REALITY. What lessons are we teaching all of our future athletes?
