LONDON - Women's all-around gymnastics champion Gabby Douglas missed out on an individual medal in the uneven bars competition Monday.
Russia's Aliya Mustafina won the event. China's He Kexin earned silver and Great Britain's Beth Tweddle took bronze.
Douglas finished eighth overall.
Just 18 months after blowing out her knee and putting her chances for London in doubt, Mustafina won the title on uneven bars Monday. It gave the 2010 world champion a full set of medals, following her silver in the team competition and bronze in the all-around. Mustafina couldn't take her eyes off the scoreboard after the final results were posted, staring at it with pride.
Any medal was fine with Tweddle, the inspiration for Britain's gymnastics renaissance. She had come close in 2008, missing the bronze by a whisker, and briefly considered retiring. When the final results flashed, showing her third, the O2 Arena cheered so loudly you'd think she had won the gold.
He Kexin of China won the silver medal.
