Gabby Douglas wins gold in the all-around

Sorry to spoil the Olympics for you, but if you didn’t want to know who won the All-Around competition in Women’s Gymnastics today, you really should have avoided the Internet all-together. Gabby Douglas, whom we (ever-so-presciently) selected as today’s Olympian to Watch, just clinched the gold. She’s only the fourth American to do so (after Mary Lou Retton, Shannon Miller and Nastia Liukin) and the first African-American. Russians Viktoria Komova and Aliya Mustafina grabbed silver and bronze, respectively, narrowly edging out Aly Raisman.
