Video Comparison of Controversial(?) Jordyn Wieber Win of 2011 Gymnastics World All-Around Championship over Viktoria Komova

Jordyn Wieber’s start value advantage on vault was quickly overcome with Jordyn’s error on bars and Komova’s excellent bar performance. Komova was shaky on beam tumbling elements and Wieber made up some ground. Wieber went out of bounds on otherwise strong floor exercise routine. After Komova’s routine, virtually everyone in the arena assumed Komova had won, including Wieber(?), but the judges deducted Komova heavily for falling out of a double turn and Wieber outscored Komova by .033.
