Olympic Women's Gymnastics All-Around Results 2012: Live Scores & Highlights
In a breathtaking all-around final which came down to the last rotation American Gabby Douglas beat out Russian Viktoria Komova for the gold medal.
Douglas is the first American woman to win the team gold and all-around gold.
Russia's Aliya Mustafina took the bronze after she beat out Aly Raisman in a tiebreaker.
Take a look at the live updates from the event.
Gabby Douglas is currently trending on Twitter.
And with that I'll leave you for the day. What a great competition that was with the top gymnasts truly pushing each other to their highest potential. Thanks for following.
So proud of you @aly_raisman! You amaze me every day!
Jordyn Wieber already tweeted at both American gymnasts:
Congrats @gabrielledoug! You are the Olympic all around champion and you deserve it girl!
I'm seeing mixed reports on how the tiebreaker is decided:
FIG correction: tiebreaker is you drop the lowest score of the 4. Add the highest 3. Whoever has that wins.— Will Graves (@WillGravesAP) August 2, 2012
The tiebreaker rule is the highest combined execution score followed by highest combined difficulty score.— USA Gymnastics (@USAGym) August 2, 2012
It's such a powerful moment when they play the national anthem.
Gabby looks so happy on top of the podium. I was expecting some waterworks but none yet.
They are showing the medal ceremony now. Gabby is right in the middle flanked by Russians Komova and Mustafina. I am happy that Mustafina had a good comeback the Russians do deserve it.
I'm beyond happy for Douglas right now but feel terrible to Raisman. When anything comes down to a tiebreaker it's just heartbreaking.
A tiebreaker is how Nastia Liukin ended up with the silver medal on uneven bars.
Have to be happy for Coach Liang Chow - took Douglas from talented, but inconsistent to rock solid Olympic all-around champion— Alexa Ainsworth (@AAinsworthNBC) August 2, 2012
Graves just tweeted again with a correction from the FIG. He said the lowest score of the four is dropped and then you add the highest three and whoever has the highest score then wins.
Gabby is the first female gymnast from the U.S. to win both a Team Gold and an All Around Gold in one Olympics.
Raisman lost out on the podium due to a tiebreaker. According to Associated Press reporter Will Graves on Twitter- The combined execution scores from the events are the tiebreaker and then it's followed by the difficulty scores.
The final standings are: 1. Gabby Douglas 62.232, 2 Viktoria Komova 61.973, 3 Mustafina & Raisman 59.566
It seems as if Raisman lost the tiebreaker and was given fourth. I'm not positive on the tiebreak rules for the all-around, but I know it comes down to a deeper look at execution scores and difficulty scores.
Komova nailed a perfect floor routine but it was not enough to pass Gabby Douglas.
Gabby is the third straight American all-around champion!
Gabby notched a 15.033 on floor. Komova has the best chance of passing her up for all-around gold and Komova goes last on the event. She needs a 15.36 win.
Aly Raisman is fighting for a spot on the podium and floor is her strongest event.
Gabby looked a little nervous at the beginning of her floor routine, but who wouldn't be when she has so much on the line?
She had a great first pass and then hit the pass where she goes out of bound a lot. The crowd was clapping along with the music. It's such a catchy tune.
She nailed that routine and had a giant grin from ear to ear at the end of her routine while the arena just erupted. Her teammates were crying in the stands.
Douglas is up on the floor talk about nerve wreaking. Will she be the next Nastia? If she hits this it's more than likely...
All-around ranking after 3 events: 1-Douglas 47.199, 2-Komova 46.873, 3-Mustafina 44.966, 4-Deng Linlin 44.466, 5-Raisman 44.433
If Douglas hits her floor routine she will probably be good. Raisman has a great floor routine though, arguably the best in the world and can get onto the medal stand. Anything is possible as proven in these past few days of exciting and unpredictable gymnastics.
Gabby nails her beam routine. She has been so consistent this Olympics, just stunning everybody. Now Raisman practically almost fell off the beam. That's going to be hard to come back from. But floor is where she really shines.
Mustafina fell off the beam and scored a 13.633. What a sad day for her, this probably kicks her off the medal stand. She was so tough today, it seemed like a great rebound. Someone is going to fall though right?
Gabby is going on the beam now.
Komova is on her a-plus game today. She had a few bobbles and wobbles on beams but still looked amazing, good for a 15.441. There's no messing with Komova.
Gabby Douglas is well on her way to all-around gold. The big question: Will she do another victory dance if she wins?
After two rotations the standings are: 1. Douglas 2. Komova 3. Mustafina 4. Raisman.
You can't count Raisman out yet because she is fabulous on the next two events, beam and floor. If Douglas hits her beam then she may be un catchable.
Mustafina just had an unreal bars set. She scored a 16.10.
Gabby's was really good, but not quite up to Mustafina level- 15.733. It's funny, her leotard kind of blends in with the arena.
I will say everyone has looked great today *knock on wood*. I'm anxious to see how the Russians do on floor after 'The Great Russian Floor Debacle.' Dun, dun, dun.
