Reigning world all-around champion Jordyn Wieber failed to make the cut in the women's gymnastics all-around Olympics event on Sunday.

Finishing just over two-tenths of a point behind U.S. teammates Gabby Douglas and Alexandra Raisman, the Olympic medal favourite was cut over a two-per country athlete rule for the All-Around competition.

The U.S. champion came in as the heavy favourite for gold, having lost only two all-around competitions since 2008 — both to U.S. teammates.

On Sunday she had no hope of getting one of the nation's two places in Thursday's fight for the individual title.

Scouring 60.032 in the qualifying round, Wieber trailed Douglas' 60.265 and Raisman's 60.391. While it was just fractions of a point, it was enough to push her out with the rule only allowing two from her country to go on.


Earlier this month Wieber lost to Douglas at the Olympic trials earlier this month, and wasn’t her normal rock-solid self on Sunday.

She had a form break on a handstand on uneven bars, and a few wobbles on balance beam.

After Ross and Douglas both flew out of bounds on floor exercise, Wieber got way too much power on one of her tumbling passes and had to take a step back to steady herself.

Only problem was, it was out of bounds, and the deduction all but ended any chance she had of staying in the top two.

The defending champion left the gymnastics floor in tears after missing the all-around.

'I'll be alright,' the American said as she was escorted away by a women's coach.

'We were all looking very strong. It was always going to be close between the three of us doing AA and in the end it is what it is,' Wieber reacted to the disappointment according to Gymnastike.

'You try to find words because it's almost like someone passes away, and what do you say?' Team coordinator Martha Karolyi said. 'But the fact is the fact. She did her best and she was edged by her teammates.'

'415 is the lucky number this week,' Wieber's head coach John Geddert Tweeted on Sunday while showing a photo of her Olympics number. 'Try your luck with the local lottery.'

'Thank you all for your love and support. I am so proud of our team today and I can't wait for team finals!!' she later posted on her Twitter account.
