Olympic Women's Gymnastics 2012 Results: Day 7 Scores, Medalists and Standings

Brian Mazique@@UniqueMaziqueCorrespondent IIIAugust 5, 2012

Day 7 of the gymnastics competition was a bit of a disappointment for Team USA. Not only did the heavily favored McKayla Maroney fall short of a gold medal in the vault (settling for silver), but Jake Dalton also finished fifth in men's floor exercise.

For all of the triumphs the United States gymnastics team has experienced, London 2012 has carried some tough times as well.

The men's team stumbled to a fifth-place finish in the team competition. John Orozco's performance was far beneath the hype he received just as competition began.

Jordyn Wieber was considered a top contender in the all-around competition, but because of the two-per-country rule, she didn't qualify for the finals. Aly Raisman just missed a medal in the all-around on a technicality later in the week.

We can add Maroney's and Dalton's days to this list. But overall, the Americans have had a solid showing, and there could be more medals left to win, as Gabby Douglas tries to add to her medal total on the uneven bars on Monday.

Sam Mikulak will try to land an individual medal in the men's vault, as well.

Here's how the overall day in gymnastics transpired:

McKayla Maroney seemed to handle her disappointment well. After failing to win the gold medal, she tweeted this about her respectable finish:
