U.S. gymnast Gabrielle Douglas made Olympic history Thursday with a gold-medal performance in the artistic gymnastics women’s individual all-around competition in London. The 16-year-old became the first African-American Olympic all-around champion and the fourth American woman and third consecutive American to win the all-around, after Mary Lou Retton in 1984, Carly Patterson in 2004 and Nastia Liukin in 2008.
