n a stunning upset, defending world champion Jordyn Wieber failed to advance to the women's gymnastics all-around finals. While Wieber finished fourth place overall, a controversial rule dictates that only two gymnasts from each country's team can advance to the all-around finals, and two of Wieber's U.S. teammates, Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman, scored higher than her. Russia's Victoria Komova had the highest score in the preliminary individual all-around competition.
