Raisman Takes Home Gold For U.S. In Floor Exercise
LONDON (CBSSPORTS.COM) – Two Olympic gold medals are just fine with Gabby Douglas. Same for Aly Raisman, though that bronze was pretty sweet, too.
While the all-around champion failed to add to her medal haul Tuesday, Raisman wrapped up the London Olympics in style. Her gold on floor exercise was the first for a U.S. woman, and her bronze on balance beam was a bit of karmic payback.
Douglas may have won the most prestigious gymnastics title — all-around champion — but Raisman leaves as the most decorated of the Fierce Five with three medals.
“To say that I even almost had four medals, that makes me even more happy,” the U.S. captain said, referring to an earlier tiebreak that snatched away a bronze. “It definitely went better than I thought it would.”
