NO HAPPY FACE
NO HAPPY FACE
By The Associated Press

Russian gymnasts Victoria Komova and Aliya Mustafina both said they were pleased with their silver and bronze medals after the women's all-around competition.

Yet their body language said the exact opposite.

Komova broke into tears when the final scores were posted and shoved her silver medal in her left pocket after the ceremony.



When asked why, she rolled her eyes, and Mustafina said something to her in Russian. Komova said something brief and a translator replied the medal was in her pocket because "it is heavy."

So why the long face?

"I'm still upset because I could have been gold and I didn't get it," Komova said through a translator.
