American Gabby Douglas took home the gold medal in the women's gymnastics all-around competition at the London Olympics today, the Wall Street Journal reports. It's the second gold for the 16-year-old Virginia native, who on Monday helped the U.S. women's gymnastics squad take home their first gold medal in the team competition since 1996.
 
Douglas is the first African-American Olympic champion in all-around gymnastics, and also the third U.S. gymnast in a row to take home the all-around gold medal; Nastia Liukin finished on top in Beijing in 2008 and Carly Patterson won in Athens in 2004.


Aly Raisman emerges as breakout star capturing gold on floor, bronze on beam

LONDON – Barely an hour after needing a protest to win a bronze in the balance beam, American gymnast Aly Raisman won her second medal of the day with a gold in the floor routine.

Raisman performed a near-flawless routine on the floor, perfectly landing several high-spinning moves. When she was done, the sold-out crowd at the North Greenwich Arena roared its approval. 

Raisman won three medals, to  Gabby  Douglas'  and McKayla Maroney's  two each.  She narrowly missed a fourth medal when tied for third in the all-around finals, but lost out due to a new tie breaking rule.  Having placed second in the all-around qualification, along with Gabby Douglas' placing third, knocked  fellow teammate and current world champion Jordyn Weiber out of the all-around finals.

Raisman came into the Olympics as a supporting player to current national all-around champion Gabby Douglas and current world champions Jordyn Weiber (all-around) and McKayla Maroney (vault).  Douglas' performance in the individual event finals was lack luster and didn't result in any medals.  Maroney sat down her second vault and received a disappointing silver.  Weiber's only final event performance was on floor  and wasn't enough to award her an individual medal.
