At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the U.S. women's gymnastics team won seven individual medals—two gold, four silver, and one bronze—and the silver medal in the team all-around. This was the United States's best ever Olympic performance, topping even the 1984 squad, who won the same number of medals but a higher proportion of bronze.
Team USA hopes to carry that success into the 2012 London Olympics, and they have assembled an outstanding team of young gymnasts capable of bringing home a treasure trove of medals.
The team is led by Jordyn Wieber, perhaps the best all-around gymnast in the world. Wieber is joined by Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, and Kyla Ross.
Here we look at who represents the United States' best medal opportunity in each individual event at the 2012 London Olympics.
