Wow, talk about a tight race. Gabby Douglas beat out Jordyn Wieber by .1 point — 123.450 to 123.350 — for the all-around title.
Douglas and Wieber will be joined by Alexandra Raisman, Kyla Ross and McKayla Maroney on the Olympic team. They are coming to the stage in a deafening roar from the crowd. Anna Li is an alternate along with two others.
Douglas literally vaulted her way to the top, making up the majority of her .3 deficit heading into the second day of the trials in her first event. Douglas scored a remarkable 16 in the vault — the best score of the day in any event — but still trailed Wieber after the first rotation. Douglas then added a nearly as good score of 15.9 on the uneven bars to take the lead, the highest of the day in that event. She finished with a 14.85 on the beam and a 15.3 on the floor routine to cap her winning performance.
Wieber, meanwhile, had the competition in the bag until she wavered on the balance beam. She scored 14.9 on that event.
