BEST: Chellsie Memmels comeback
Limited only to the uneven bars at this years Olympics due to a broken ankle, Memmel landed in Beijing with a ready-for-prime-time back story. Memmel missed the 2007 world championships due to an injury and would now have only one event in which she could help the U.S. win a medal. At the trials, she floundered, slipping from the bars. But in the finals, she was on point, and her bars performance played as one of the more wonderfully tense moments of the evening.
