LONDON — Aly Raisman finished the Olympics in style.

The U.S. captain matched Gabby Douglas in gold medals, winning the title on floor exercise Tuesday. Add in the bronze on balance beam from earlier in the day, and she becomes the most decorated of the Fierce Five.

Good thing Raisman had such a big day because the rest of the Americans came up empty-handed. Douglas had another rough day, finishing seventh on balance beam after a fall. World champion Jordyn Wieber, voted most likely to leave the Olympics with the biggest haul, was seventh on floor and finishes without any individual medals.

    Aly Reisman has been doing a great job and she got her chance to be in the spotlight. She earned a gold in the Gymnastics floor routine and a bronze in on the beam! I think it just came down to Aly getting a feel for where she wanted to go. She did an awesome routine to “Hava Nagila” and won the hearts of the crowd with her great smile. Gabby Douglas didn’t do as well as we were expecting her to but she has nothing to be ashamed of.  There are thousands of hours of coverage and several channels included in the Olympics coverage so finding what you’re looking for can be really hard. I just recently upgraded to the Hopper which comes with three tuners and 2,000 hours of recording time available. Now I can record each event and I don’t have to stress out about having enough space for all the sports I want to see. I’m glad I followed my Dish co-worker’s advice: the Hopper has been a huge time saver. Now that the Gymnastics competition is over, I’ll be recording other sports but I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for Aly in the 2016 Olympics.
