Can we take this moment to appreciate how historic the 2012 Canadian gymnasts were in London? 
I mean, this was the first time in 26 years that Canada had a women’s gymnastic team qualify to the team finals, and the first team to qualify at a non-boycotted Olympics - because of these 5 girls. 
They qualified in last place, but finished in 5th place - behind China by less than 4 points, and beating teams such as Italy, Britain, and Japan.
2 of the 8 gymnasts in the vault final were Canadian and another qualified for the All-Around finals. 
Canada could not have been more proud !!!
