Smiling 16-year-old Gabby Douglas took the Olympic Games by storm on 2 August 2012 when she won the all-around gold medal ahead of Russian Victoria Komova. Komova was reduced to tears for the second time in three days when Douglas pipped her to the title by 0.259 of a point after producing the day's best performances on the vault and the beam.
