Gabby Douglas is having an Olympics that will go down in history. The 16-year-old, nicknamed the "Flying Squirrel" by the team's coordinator, just made history by becoming the first American woman to win a team gymnastics gold, as well as the all-around gold.

Douglas led the all-around from the start, rocking 62.232 points to beat out Russians Victoria Komova and Aliya Mustafina for gold.

Douglas set the bar high right at the beginning with a score of 15.966 on the vault, the highest any of the 24 gymnasts on the floor. She also had the highest score on the beam. Her floor exercise, the last event, had the audience cheering and chanting her name.

After her triumphant finish, Douglas collapsed into the arms of her coach, Liang Chow. Douglas, after all, became only the fifth American woman to win the gymnastics all-around.
