Gabby Douglas won the women's all-around title Thursday at the London Olympics.

The 16-year-old became the third straight American to win the all-around gold, following Nastia Liukin in 2008 and Carly Patterson in 2004.

Douglas, who also won gold with the United States in the team competition, clinched the title on the floor exercise and finished with a score of 62.232.

Russia's Viktoria Komova took silver and Aliya Mustafina, also of Russia, took bronze.

Mustafina and American Aly Raisman finished tied for third with identical scores of 59.566, but the Russian got the bronze on a tiebreak. The lowest scores for both gymnasts were dropped, and the remaining three were totaled. That gave Mustafina a total of 45.933 and Raisman 45.366.
