When and where: The Women's Individual All-Around competition gets underway from the North Greenwich Arena at 11.30 a.m. ET. A live stream of the event can be viewed at NBCOlympics.com.
Preview: On Tuesday, the United States women's gymnastics team delivered a stunning performance to take home their first Olympic team gold since 1996.
The U.S. opened with a superb showing on the vault. Jordyn Wieber earned a 15.933 and teammate Gabby Douglas followed with a 15.966. Then, McKayla Maroney, the 16-year-old defending world vault champion, attempted the most difficult vault of the competition. She stuck a perfect landing despite a broken toe and scored a 16.233.
The U.S. dominated from that point on, finishing the competition with 183.596 points. The Russians took silver with 178.530 and Romania took bronze with 176.414 points. The 5.066 point margin of victory was one of the most dominant in international competition to date.
World class gymnasts from Russia crumbled on the floor routines, while China, the 2008 gold medalists, disappointed on the balance beam, making disastrous mistakes.
The American gymnasts, who are all participating in their very first Olympic games, will now try to carry their dominance over into the individual events. The Women's Individual All-Around will take place on Thursday.
Notably missing from the individual all-around will be Wieber, who finished fourth in the qualification but did not make the cut due to a two-athlete-limit-per-country rule in the competition.
Instead, Douglas and Aly Raisman will represent the United States, but will likely face stiff competition from gymnasts looking to redeem themselves from poor team performances.
Victoria Komova of Russia finished the women's qualification in first place and was Russia's top performer in the team competition. She is the 2011 World Uneven Bar Champion and scored a 15.766 in the team competition, the second best score of the day on the uneven bars.
Komova's weakness is the floor event. In the qualification rounds, she scored a low 13.900. She is solid in every other event and is one of the most consistent gymnasts in the world. She is undoubtedly one of the favorites to win gold.
Aly Raisman, the U.S. team captain and surprise qualifier for the individual all-around competition, will count on her exceptional floor routine to help her medal in the individual competition. After a stellar performance in the team competition, Raisman is expected to provide the highest score on the floor routine.
However, if she hopes to win gold, she will have to improve her performance on the uneven bars. Given her calm demeanor and composure throughout the Games, Raisman appears ready to rise to the challenge.
Douglas was Team USA's most versatile gymnast in the team competition and will have the opportunity to wow judges on Thursday. Nicknamed "the flying squirrel" for her remarkable release moves, Douglas is one of the clear favorites to take home a medal.
She is strong in every event but is expected to shine on the vault and uneven bars. In order for her to win gold, however, she will need to perform a flawless routine on the floor, which has been an inconsistent event.
Another favorite to medal is Russia's Aliya Mustafina. The 17-year-old won the all-around at the 2010 World Championships and had some strong performances in the team competition. Like her compatriot, Komova, Mustafina's strength will be the uneven bars. Without notable errors, she will likely score around 15.700 in the event.
Unlike Raisman and Douglas however, Mustafina does not have an exceptionally strong vault. This may prove to hurt the Russian since the vault usually provides gymnasts with the highest scoring potential.
Based on performances in the last three days, the individual all-around competition will be a battle between Russian and American gymnasts. There will be little room for error for anyone who hopes to medal in what is a hugely impressive field.
