Gabby Douglas has been 2-for-2 in Olympic golds, but that streak came to an end Monday.
Olympics: The top moments (so far!)
The team and all-around champ finished last among the eight finalists in the uneven bars event final with a score of 14.9.
Russia's Aliya Mustafina won gold (16.1333), followed by 2008 gold medalist China's He Kexin (15.933) and Beth Tweddle (15.916), who won the first Olympic women's gymnastics medal for Great Britain.
Though Douglas is known for her sky-high releases on bars — hence her "Flying Squirrel" nickname — the 16-year-old was not expected to medal since her routine has a lower start value. She took herself out of contention when she stalled on a handstand. Douglas' highest-scoring bars routine during the Olympics was a 15.733 during the all-around final, which would've placed fifth Monday.
