U.S. Olympic Gymnast Aly Raisman won a gold medal in the floor exercise and a bronze medal in the balance beam in the final day of women's gymnastic competition.
Raisman, the team captain from Needham, Mass., scored a 15.6 in the floor exercise according to a report from NBC-TV.
Raisman’s teammate Jordyn Wieber, in her only individual event competition, finished seventh among eight gymnasts in the floor exercise with a 14.500.
Raisman was next up after Weiber and performed a “dazzling" 15.600 . Romania's Catalina Ponor taking silver with a 15.200, according to an article on Cleveland.com.
Raisman also wins bronze medal in balance beam controversy
Raisman also won a bronze medal in the balance beam competition after her coach filed an appeal to the judges. Raisman originally came in fourth place in the beam with a score of 14.966.
However, after her coach filed what is called an inquiry, the judges increased the difficulty element of Raisman's score which earned her an additional tenth of a point. The addition then placed her in a tie with Romania's Catalina Ponor. Raisman then won the tiebreaker.
In an ironic twist, this time the tiebreaker favored Raisman. Earlier in the gymnastics competition, Raisman lost a tiebreaker when she finished fourth in the all-around competition, which caused her to lose the bronze medal.
Douglas misses medal
Gabby Douglas, the women’s individual all-around gold medal winner, missed out on a medal for the beam when she fell off the beam during her routine. Additionally, she did not medal in the floor exercise.
China swept the top two spots in the beam, with Deng Linlin taking gold and world champion Sui Lu earning silver.
