Gabby Douglas: Jordyn Wieber will be OK
U.S. gymnast Gabby Douglas is a bit torn.
The 16-year-old is happy for Aly Raisman, 18, who will represent the United States with Douglas in the all-around gymnastics finals at the London Olympics. But she's sad for Jordyn Wieber, 17, the reigning world champion who failed to qualify for the finals.
"I know she will be able to get past this disappointment and help lead us in the team final," Douglas says.
The women's team final, in which the United States is the favorite, is scheduled for Tuesday.
