Just after Gabby Douglas won the gold medal in women's gymnastics for the individual all-around, announcer Bob Costa indicated that perhaps she would now be an inspiration to many young African-American girls.

"Bodies In Motion" was an online video produced by NBC in which women competing in various Olympic sports were featured in softcore, fetishist slow-motion highlights, while porn-tastic jazz music played on the soundtrack.
