Gymnastics fans are upset with Ukraine after team takes zeroes in Olympic final
After six rotations, Japan took team gold with a score of 274.09, followed by Russia and China.
Ukraine finished eighth of eighth, 69 points behind the next closest team, with a 202.07.
the word we have received is that this was a planned strategy by Ukraine – to not put up all gymnasts in the team final….

If you're in an Olympic team final you better find some giants or something to do. Come on Ukraine. That's disrespectful.
