London 2012 Women's Beam Finals: Results and Photos
The women's beam finals took place on Thursday, August 9th. Here are the results and photos from the event.
The Women's beam final started at 9.47 a.m. ET on Thursday. Gabby Douglas won loud cheers as she prepared to take the beam today, but her performance ended her Olympics debut on a sour note.
From the beginning, the U.S. gymnast was wobbly in the women's beam final. A fall off the beam sank her hopes of a medal, but her performance was marked by near-falls throughout.
Teammate Aly Raisman's fortunes were different. After judges watched an instant replay, they boosted her from fourth place to a bronze medal.
