Gabby Douglas competes Thursday in the Olympic All-Around competition, representing the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics Team.
Douglas will face off against teammate Aly Raisman and some of the best female gymnasts in the world in an effort to add another gold medal to her collection.
If you don’t want to know what happens during the competition because you’d like to watch it tonight on NBC – stop reading now.
Gabby Douglas now has a pair of gold medals after her win in the All-Around competition. Gabby scored a 15.033 on the floor exercise and Russia’s Viktoria Komova needed a 15.359 to overtake her. Komova scored a 15.100.
Gabby had the lead after every rotation and didn’t relinquish it. She finished with a score of 62.232. Her teammate Aly Raisman ended up tied with Russia’s Aliya Mustafina in third place with the same score, but the tiebreaker meant the bronze went to Mustafina.
Douglas already has gold from Tuesday’s team competition, where Team USA dominated – beating silver medalists Russia by more than five points.
Douglas has been training in West Des Moines with Liang Chow at Chow’s Gymnastics for the past two years. Chow coached Shawn Johnson to Olympic gold on the balance beam in 2008 at the Beijing Olympics.
The All-Around competition won’t air on NBC until Thursday night.
