Nerves got the best of her, and she just looked like she was going to cry when they kept asking her those questions. Poor girl. Still probably would not have won the gold even if she put in her normal performances .
The US lost by 2.5pts. She had a couple big deductions (along with some minor ones by the other girls) that could have possibly made up the difference.
China also had 2. something more points in difficulty, meaning US had to score perfectly because China began with a stronger degree of difficulty, but more reward.
