Alexandra Raisman of the United States won the gold medal in the women's gymnastics floor exercise Tuesday at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Raisman performed a near-perfect routine on the floor perfectly landing numerous spinning jumps to win the title. She bested defending champion Sandra Izbasa who fell on her routine.
Romania's Catalina Ponor won silver and Aliya Mustafina from Russia won bronze.
Earlier Tuesday, Raisman won the bronze medal on the Olympic balance beam after an appeal and a tiebreaker with Romania's Ponor.
Raisman had scored 14.9 in her beam routine but the U.S. team requested a review from the judges on her difficulty element.
As a result, the judges increased her score to 15.066, tying Catalina Ponor of Romania in third place.
But in the end Raisman snatched the bronze because her execution was better, 8.766 compared to Ponor's 8.466 score.
The floor medal was Raisman's third medal at the London Games including the team gold last week.
The floor exercise marked the final artistic gymnastics event at the London Games today.
