TiVo Olympic Coverage – Top Moments – August 7, 2012
Led by Aly Raisman, the USA women’s gymnastics team continued to dominate TiVo’s most-watched moments on Day 11 of the London Olympics. In the women’s balance beam finals, the bronze medal came down to a tie between Raisman and Romania’s Catalina Ponor, in which the winner was decided by who had the higher execution score. Raisman’s higher score allowed her to top Ponor for bronze on the beam, but the two continued their competition in the next televised event.
In the women’s floor exercise finals, Raisman nailed one of her best performances but then had to wait anxiously for the rest of her competitors to perform before claiming her gold medal. Again, one of those competitors was Catalina Ponor, who also gave a great performance but ended up taking silver. Moments from both the women’s floor exercise and balance beam finals contributed to the remaining 4 TiVo Top Moments for Day 11.
