Notable Moments

  • USA's Gabby Douglas competed as an alternate, which means she was scored for her routines, but her scores did not count. Had her scores counted, she would have won the American Cup over Jordyn Wieber. Many fans believe that Douglas is the "unofficial" 2012 American Cup Champion. Douglas would go on to win the all-around at the Olympics, upholding the idea that the gymnast who wins the American Cup at Madison Square Garden the year of the Olympics would win the Olympic all-around title. Douglas became the fifth gymnast to accomplish this, following Nadia Comaneci in 1976, Mary Lou Retton in 1984, Carly Patterson in 2004, and Nastia Liukin in 2008.
