Fall on your butt - get a silver olympic medal, god save usa.
She's the best vaulter of all time and made one mistake. Granted it couldn't have come at a worse time, but still.
well technically no one cares how hard youve been training and how good you are at the moment, what really matters is whether you can perform with outstanding quality or not. Unfortunately Mckayla failed so her silver was pretty much slap in the face for others, who didn't. Anyways she's a great gymnast.
Landing bad is not a huge deal. That's a 1 point dedcution if I recall. The bulk of the points is demonstrating good technique and execution in the actual vault. Which she destroys everyone in. Two jumps and her first (without the fall) is what got her good enough for the silver (top score of all of the day).
Like another sport, figure skating, you can fall and still get a medal.
