Aly Raisman finished the Olympics with a gold and bronze on the final day of gymnastics.

Raisman won the gold on floor exercise and the bronze on balance beam Tuesday afternoon, becoming the most decorated of the American Fierce Five.

The rest of the Americans didn't fair as well as Raisman.  Gabby Douglas finished seventh on balance beam after a fall.  Jordyn Wieber ended her Olympics seventh on the floor exercise and leaves London without an individual medal.

Raisman scored a 15.6 after performing some of the most difficult tumbling passes on floor exercise.  Catalina Ponor of Romania won the silver while Aliya Mustafina of Russia got the bronze.

Raisman, who is Jewish, won her gold medal on the 40th anniversary of the Munich massacre.  The 18-year-old performed her routine to the Hebrew folk song 'Hava Nagila', but says she did not select the music specifically for the anniversary.

"Having that floor music wasn't intentional, but the fact it was on the 40th anniversary is special and winning the gold today means a lot to me," she said.

"If there had been a moment's silence, I would have supported it and respected it."

On the balance beam, Deng Linlin of China won gold while her teammate Sui Lu won silver.

Raisman initially was fourth at the event with a score of 14.966.  But after further review the judges awarded her with an extra tenth of a point placing her tied with Ponor for third at 15.066.  Raisman ended up winning the bronze because her execution score was higher than Ponor's.
