Yes, I did watch a lot of it, until I started listening to the OSU football pre-game on the internet radio.
I've always enjoyed watching it when I have gotten the chance, which hasn't been very often. Quite far from "artistic" gymnastics, more dance and acrobatics, than gymnastics. The overall team competition (5 gymnasts per team) this year was the combination of their scores from the 5-balls and 3-ribbons+2-hoops. There were some pretty amazing feats that they performed ... I'd have to go back and look at the tape to try and describe what they did ... like tossing the hoops using the ribbons or visa-versa ... and the throws of the balls, which made me wonder how they would do shooting a basketball!
The CBC coverage of the Tokoyo meet is similar to NBC's in that they are only covering this week's team finals.
