When to Watch: Gymnastics

After tonight's opening ceremonies for the Olympics, the competition starts almost immediately and gymnastics are no exception. The men's qualifying rounds start Saturday, and unfortunately Morgan Hamm will not be competing. Yesterday he joined his twin Paul, a gold medalist in 2004 games, on the injured list and is out due to an ankle injury. The men's gymnastic team will carry on and I am sure it will prove exciting.

When I asked a while back, you all were most fired up about gymnastics, I thought I would post the general schedule of those events so you can watch or at least set up your TiVo.

Yay! Thanks. I was just thinking "I wish Fit would post the Olympics schedule so I'll know when to watch gymnastics."

The 88 olympics inspired me to become a gymnast....and then a growth spurt two years later when I was six inspired me to leave gymnastics.

When I still had shooting as a hobby, I met most of those shooters that are now in the olympics team (including the one who carried the flag). Despite that, I've always preferred to watch gymnastics :D

I love gymnastics! When I was a kid, I'd pretend to compete in floor exercises.
