The United States women's gymnastics team was the toast of London on Tuesday and Wednesday, but now it's time to go back to work.

They have a chance to add to their medal count on Thursday when the all-around competition begins. Gabby Douglas has established herself as the top American female, and possibly the odds-on favorite to win the gold medal.

Here's how you can catch the action:

 

When: Thursday, 11:30 a.m. ET

Where: London, England

TV: NBC Prime Time (Tape Delay)

Live Stream: NBCOlympics.com

 

Aly Raisman will also be competing for a medal in the all-around. The Americans' stiffest challenge may come from Russian gymnasts Viktoria Komova and Aliya Mustafina.

They faltered terribly in the team competition, and the entire Russian team's misstep paved the way for the Americans gold-medal performance.

Team USA had an excellent shot at obtaining gold even with a strong showing from Russia, but the disappointing performance made it an easy win.

If Mustafina or Komova can return to the form they showed prior to London 2012, they could offer significant resistance. At this point, the confidence of Douglas and Raisman has to be sky high.

They received phone calls from President Barack Obama yesterday and congratulations from the singer Pink on Twitter.

Just talked to the President of the United States!!! WOW such and honor and a amazing feeling!! 🇺🇸😄 #thankyou

It's been a great week, and they have a chance to make it even greater.
