Gaby was huge stand out at the London Olympics four years ago and this time around she’s struggled a bit, coming in 7th on the uneven bars instead of 1st. She admitted that QUOTE “In my head, I pictured it a little bit differently. You want to picture yourself being on top and doing amazing gymnastics.” Gaby – girl – I still want to congratulate you on being 7th in the world at something most of us couldn’t even attempt.

I wasn’t. I was supporting Aly [Raisman]. And I always will support them and respect them in everything they do. I never want anyone to take it as I was jealous or I wanted attention. Never. I support them, and I’m sorry that I wasn’t showing it.
