Day 9 of the Olympic Games in London saw three gymnastics events wrap up, with one of Team USA's Fab Five women taking home another medal for the squad and other notable names reaching the podium as well.

McKayla Maroney finished with a silver medal in the women's vault final due to perhaps her first mistake of the entire Olympics with an unlikely fall.

While some may call a silver medal disappointing from Maroney, she was a vital part of Team USA capturing the team all-around gold earlier, and it's important to note this is just her first Summer Games.

Despite it being her first time on the Olympic stage, Maroney handled the results like a pro. She spoke with Associated Press writer Will Graves after the competition and he was kind enough to tweet part of the interview out to his followers:

McKayla: ""It happens, it's gymnastics. You can't be perfect and sometimes things don't go as you planned ... I messed up."

Sandra Izbasa of Romania took gold in the vault after an impressive performance of her own, posting a final score of 15.191 with a 6.1 and 5.8 difficulty score in both respective attempts.

Maria Paseka of Russia took home the bronze medal in the event with a score of 15.050, just .33 off Maroney's silver-medal mark.

The men's floor exercise and pommel horse event crowned champions as well, with Kai Zou of China and Krisztian Berki of Hungary winning gold in both respective events.

In an interesting turn of events in pommel horse, both Berki and Great Britain's Louis Smith finished with a score of 16.066, but Berki was awarded the top spot for having a higher score in execution. This marked the second straight Olympic games where Smith lost a medal tiebreak in this event.

Great Britain can take pride in the fact that two of its athletes medaled in this competition, however, as Max Whitlock won the bronze with a score of 15.600.

Similar occurrences took place on the men's floor exercise side, where Zou won with a score of 15.933. That mark was .133 higher than silver medalist Kohei Uchimura's mark of 15.800.

Russia's Denis Ablyazin actually finished with the same score as Uchimura, but the tiebreak based on execution score gave the Japanese gymnast the advantage. Ablyazin, while likely disappointed, can still say he earned his country's second bronze gymnastics medal of the day

Zou's victory earned him his fifth career Olympic gold medal and his second straight Summer Games title in this specific event. Here are the finals scores and standings for every Day 9 gymnastics event.
