They had their tears of joy on Tuesday and huge smiles as the gold medals were put around their necks, but now Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman are getting serious once more as they compete for the all-around gold on Aug. 2's women's individual finals.
They will compete against 22 other competitors in vault, uneven bars, beam and floor.

Without Jordyn Wieber in the lineup, who did not qualify for the finals since only two athletes can compete per country, Raisman and Douglas will battle it out for the gold and with their scores in past tournaments, it is likely that the gold will go to one of them rather than a competitor from another country.
Gabby's attempt at "Olympic immortality," according to Fox Sports, will mean that she will make history as the only American gymnast to add an individual all-around gold medal to her already won team gold. The pressure is on for her to perform her best- not just for herself, but also for her coaches, family and fans.
"Yeah, everyone will put pressure on me, but you try to ignore it, perform, have fun," she said. "I enjoy this."
Raisman has been solid in the competition so there is a chance for the gymnast to steal the gold for herself. She had the top score in the qualifying round and left no room for Wieber in the competition, who cried and could not believe that she would not be going to the finals. Reigning world champion Wieber says that Raisman will not go out without a punch.
These two contenders won a gold medal as part of the "Fab Five" and now want one all for themselves, without having to share the title.
