A funny thing happened on the way to the women's gymnastics all-around finals. American favorite Jordyn Wieber - the defending world all-around champion - didn't make it.
After a bit of trouble on the balance beam and the floor exercise, Wieber ended up the No. 3 American in qualifying, trailing her friend/roommate Aly Raisman and teammate Gabby Douglas. Only 24 gymnasts qualify for the all-around finals (NBC primetime, 7-11 p.m., Ch. 5) with a maximum of two per country.
So, despite the fact that Wieber had the fourth-best score overall, she will be cheering instead of competing.
