American gymnast Gabby Douglas won the women's all-around gold today in London and becomes the third straight American to win the gold.
Douglas' gold medal in the all-around is the second of her Olympics thus far, she won gold when the Americans won the team competition two nights ago.
Known as "The Flying Squirrel", Douglas finished with a score of 62.232, just edging out the runner-up in the world competitions last year, Viktoria Komova of Russia.
Komova's floor routine was a good one, but not good enough to topple Douglas. When the score for her routine came down, Komova ran to the sidelines sobbing as she knew her score wasn't enough to take gold.
DOuglas now joins Mary Lou Retton, Carly Patterson, and Nastia Liukin as the American gold medalists in the all-around.
