BEST: The new Lara Croft
Were not taking any digs at the U.S. gymnastics team. We were happy when they made it through the qualification rounds, finishing second behind China. Early on, the U.S. was good, but also looked vulnerable, with Alicia Sacramone and Shawn Johnson flying out of bounds, and a shocking slip from Chellsie Memmel on the uneven bars.
So instead were giving props to Alison Carroll, a 23-year-old Brit who will play the role of Lara Croft to hype the new Tomb Raider game.
And why is she in this gallery? Former gymnast.
