going back to school after a break is like when you pause a video game to go pee and when you come back you forget how intense and chaotic everything was when you paused it and the second you unpause it all your enemies collectively punch you in the face
All I read was. Komova should have won. Mustafina should have won. Any Russian should have won because I love Russians and this is the Cold War so I hate Americans. Get over it, Gabby won. Now move on with your life, it’s been two years. Start rooting for some of you up-and-coming seniors that they get AA gold.

A gymnast who was attempting to become Brazil’s first freestyle skier at a Winter Games is now facing a long road to recovery after a training accident on Monday. Lais Souza, a 25-year-old who competed for Brazil in the 2004 and 2008 Summer Olympics, suffered “severe trauma” to her spine after crashing during a training run in Salt Lake City.
The Brazilian Olympic Committee reports that Souza cannot move her arms or legs. She is breathing with the help of ventilators, doctors say, and is awake and following commands. Souza is currently in the intensive care unit at University of Utah hospital.
”Lais has a long recovery process in front of her,” Team Brasil doctor Antonio Marttos said in a statement. ”A long-term prognostic cannot be predicted at this time. Her medical team is doing everything possible to allow her to have the best recovery possible.”
The BOC said the 25-year-old Souza was wearing a helmet when the accident happened as she skied ”freely” alongside Canadian coach Ryan Snow at Park City. The committee said she was not injured while practicing her freestyle maneuvers, but no other details on the accident were provided.
Souza had not yet qualified for next month’s Sochi Games, but was expected to earn a bid. The AP reports that Souza missed the London Games in 2012 because of a hand injury.
The freestyle skiing world has sadly been no stranger to tragedy. Canadian star and halfpipe pioneer Sarah Burke died on January 19, 2012 after suffering an injury during a training session in Park City, Utah. Her memory is expected to cast a large shadow at the Sochi Games.
“And it upsets me that as I record this video #wewillalwayssupportyoujustin is trending on twitter. I wish all the people who were tweeting that right now would be forced to send a tweet to explain to Katie’s family in 140 characters or less why they would quote always support someone who would do something as fundamentally selfish as driving drunk.”
