Monday's individual uneven bars final could've been the icing on what has been a historic 2012 Olympics for American gymnast Gabby Douglas. Instead, it was an event that mostly everyone won't mind forgetting, as Douglas finished eighth out of eight competitors in the event, with a score of 14.900. Gold was taken by Aliya Mustafina of Russia, silver was won by Kexin He of China and bronze went to Elizabeth Tweddle of Great Britain. Mustafina finished with a score of 16.133.
It has been a whirlwind Olympics for Douglas, and her success so far may have taken a toll on her.
Gabby said she's not sure how much sleep she's getting. Is hoping to bounce back for beam finals. She looked exhausted.— Will Graves (@WillGravesAP) August 6, 2012
Douglas will have a final chance to medal on Tuesday in the individual beam final.
