Aly Raisman 2012 Olympics: Results, Analysis and More

After helping lead the United States to a gold medal in one of the most impressive team performances in gymnastics history, Alexandra Raisman begins her solo journey in London with the all-around competition. 

The 18-year-old captain of Team USA earned her spot in the all-around with a qualifying score of 60.391, less than three tenths of a point behind Russia's Viktoria Komova for the top score. 

It will be interesting to see how Raisman fares in the all-around, especially given that her two best events are the balance beam and floor exercise. She is decent on the vault, though she looked far better than that in qualifying.

The uneven bars gave her problems, as she posted a low score of 14.166 in qualifying. It didn't hurt her overall score that much, but it would make things easier if she could bring that up just a bit in the all-around finals. 

Raisman will also be featured in the floor exercise and balance beam events that take place on August 7. All eyes will be focused on the all-around competition, obviously, but she will have another shot at supremacy in that event. 

We will have full analysis of Raisman's performance in the all-around, as well as the floor exercise next week. 

(Note: Article will be updated as results become final.)
