Olympics 2012 Gymnastics: Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas AdvanceJul 30, 2012 @ 8:55 am
Team USA led the gymnastics qualifying rounds at the Olympics this weekend! The fab five placed at the top of the rankings with 181.863 points, just slightly ahead of Russia’s 180.429 and China’s 176.637 scores. That said, the biggest news to come out of yesterday’s event was who qualified for the individual all-around competition: While many expected current world champion Jordyn Wieber, 17, to take one of the only two spots allowed per team, Gabby Douglas, 15, and Aly Raisman, 18, (shown above) pulled ahead to advance to the individual finals. (It was an emotional moment for Wieber, who tearfully left the arena.) Scroll down to find out which individual events the team members qualified for—including Wieber—and here’s to hoping Team USA brings home the gold!
