Alexandra Raisman is shocked when she sees her score on the boards at the Artistic Gymnastics Women’s Team qualification on Day 2 of the London 2012 Olympic Games held at North Greenwich Arena on Sunday afternoon (July 29) in London.
The 18-year-old Team Captain was also fed the news that teammate Jordyn Wieber didn’t qualify for the Team All-Arounds. Countries are limited to two gymnasts in the all-around and event finals.
“I was really surprised, and I feel awful because she wanted it so bad,” Aly told ESPN. “But she should still feel proud because she’s an Olympian. We have to stay calm and focused on team finals.”
The American team is on top, with Russia, China and Britain following.
