LONDON -- One of the most nerve-wracking moments of my life happened tonight, as I waited for the final score on floor in the Olympic all-around final. I had finished and was in first place, but Russian gymnast Viktoria Komova was the last gymnast to go and had done an amazing floor routine.
We were confident, strong and ready.And we won it!I still can't believe that we are Olympic champions. I feel so honored and blessed.Jordyn Wieber started us off with an amazing vault -- she pretty much stuck it -- and then it all just went from there.
When I saw the rain pouring down this morning, I grabbed my phone and texted my mom right away. "Mom, it's raining," I typed. She wrote right back, "It's going to be a great day today!"We have a superstition: When it rains, it means something good is going to happen.
When I opened my eyes Sunday morning, I knew right away it was going to be a great day. It was the final day of the U.S. gymnastics nationals, one of the most important meets leading up to the Olympics, but I was so calm.
