Jordyn Wieber has left the gymnastics floor in tears after missing the all-around. "I'll be alright," the American said as she was escorted away by a women's coach.
Team coordinator Martha Karolyi says she's worried about Wieber. "You try to find words bcause it's almost like someone passes away, and what do you say?" Karolyi says. "But the fact is the fact. She did her best and she was edged by her teammates."
The Americans finished with 181.863 points and have a big lead atop the standings, though the Russians, 2010 world champions and runners-up last year, Romanians and Chinese must still compete. The team final is Tuesday night. Wieber was only the third-best American behind Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas, and countries are limited to two in the all-around final.
