In the end, someone has to get 4th and if it wasn't Lauren it would've been someone else, and fans in some other corner of the globe would be comiserating-celebrating like we have been.
Lauren, you just made the SECOND-BEST EVER FINISH AT A WORLDS BY AN AUSTRALIAN, THE BEST EVER FINISH BY A WEST AUSTRALIAN. And to do it all after a prolonged injury period and Bejing disappointments and a teammate getting injured, we're so very proud with what you achieved. FOURTH IN THE WORLD.
ETA: Thanks to one speedy YouTube user, you can now watch the all-around back in quite good quality! Courtesy of Chinese tv, the first video (Lauren appears straight away) is here.
