It was July 2012 in London. The U.S. Olympic Gymnastics team was trying to become the first American team to win the women’s team competition on international grounds – and the second to ever do it at all. Jordyn Wieber of DeWitt had already experienced the disappointment of failing to qualify for the all-around final for individual competition. Wieber had won the gold medal for that same event in the 2011 World Championships. She was also performing with a stress fracture in her right leg.
