Gabby Douglas 2012 Olympics: Results, Analysis and More

Gabby Douglas has surpassed defending all-around world champion Jordyn Wieber as the most complete gymnast on the stacked United States squad, nicknamed the "Fab Five," thanks to her performance at the U.S. Olympic trials and so far in London.

Douglas led the way as the dominant Americans cruised to victory in the team all-around competition, earning the gold medal by more than five points over Russia. The 16-year-old Virginia native was the only team member to compete in all four events.

The "Flying Squirrel" will now turn her focus to individual gold. She is one of the two United States representatives in the all-around competition, along with Aly Raisman, who surprisingly earned a spot ahead of the aforementioned Wieber.

Individual all-around competition begins on Thursday at 11:30 a.m. ET. Both Americans will start on the vault before proceeding to the uneven bars, balance beam and floor exercise in that order.

Douglas is also scheduled to compete in two apparatus finals—the uneven bars and the balance beam—next week. Given her tremendous results over the past couple of months, she should be viewed as a strong contender for the gold medal in each event.

Keep checking back for the latest information on Douglas' performance in London. The slideshow will be updated over the next week as her results become official.
