Fun Fact: In the 1936 Olympics, two Japanese pole vaulters and close friends tied for the Silver Medal. Unable to break the tie for 5 hours of fierce competition, the two friends had their Silver and Bronze medals cut in half and welded together to form a pair of mixed medals. These became known as the Medals of Eternal Friendship.

Russians Viktoria Komova and Aliya Mustafina, who won silver and bronze respectively in the women’s gymnastics all-around competition Thursday evening, were in good spirits as they answered questions from reporters during post-meet press conference at the 02 Arena.
The two Russians were complimentary of American Gabrielle Douglas, who won the gold medal by 0.259 over Komova, the reigning World all-around silver medalist. “She performed beautifully today,” 17-year-old Komova said through a translator. “And I believe that she earned her gold medal. She was very, very good tonight.”
Echoed Mustafina: “I absolutely agree with Viktoria. She was fantastic. She didn’t make a single mistake. She became the leading athlete from the very beginning.”"
