Spoiler Alert: Gabby Douglas has qualified to compete in the women's all-around event at the London 2012 Olympics.
Douglas finished ahead of teammates Aly Raisman and defending U.S. and world champion Jordyn Wieber to go for an all-around gold, according to the Des Moines Register. Wieber was reportedly distraught following her failure to qualify for the all-around title, and didn't talk to reporters.
Because of the time delay between London and the U.S. the results of Sunday's competition are in, but NBC -- which has exclusive U.S. broadcast rights -- won't show the gymnastics event until tonight, starting at 7 p.m.
Douglas' coach, Liang Chow, told the Register's Mark Emmert it’s helpful for the young U.S. athletes to remember that the Olympics are really just the world championships with another name. The format, the equipment and the environment will be the same as what Team USA conquered to win a world title last October in Tokyo.
“At worlds, you just don’t stay in a village with other athletes,” Chow told the newspaper. “The only difference is (competition is) happening in all sports. We don’t talk about other sports, we need to get our job done.”
Douglas told the Register thinking of what lies ahead in those terms does help relieve the stress.
