It’s raining men
Tell me about Europe. That’s what I’m here for. Russia took the senior and junior men’s team titles at the European Championships, with both of Great Britain’s teams taking silver and France’s seniors having a good day to snag third.
At event finals, Ireland’s beloved son Rhys McClenaghan took his country’s first Euros medal, winning pommels in lime green pants; Russia’s Artur Dalaloyan got gold on parallel bars and vault and a bronze on floor; Great Britain’s Dominick Cunningham won floor; Switzerland’s Oliver Hegi took the high bar title; and Eleftherios Petrounias of Greece won rings.
OK, but what really happened? Well, since you asked. Italy notably came in last as a team with this balked vault. The Netherlands surprisingly failed to qualify, but Epke Zonderland impressed with big D energy on his silver-medal-winning high bar routine. Finally, with no dance elements in any men’s routine, they have no choice but to express themselves through hair.

A gymnerd wuz here. While it’s the ‘Net’s official policy not to vandalize, I’m on board with gymnerds tagging their favorite skills on concrete barriers #pikedfullin.
I think it’s good and necessary for men and women to have different events, but I don’t think it’s fair that men have more medal opportunities than women. Thoughts?
