Comments: Michelle Obama didn't seem to get off the ground, which you'd think would disqualify her from a Leaping contest. Yet the Moddle's poor form really set her back. In addition, Michelle really wowed the judges with a look that said: "I've got this." The representative from Japan actually shed a single tear of joy.
