The two young Americans’ biggest competition were Russia’s frontrunners Aliya Mustafina and Victoria Komova.
Ultimately, it came down to the final routines.
With a strong performance on the uneven bars, balance beam and on the floor exercise mat, 16-year-old Douglas outscored her rivals to take home the gold.
She became the fourth U.S. female gymnast to nab the all-around gold, following such household names as Mary Lou Retton, Shannon Miller and Nastia Liukin.

Raisman, however, faltered on the balance beam, making way for Russia’s Komova to take the silver and Mustafina the bronze.
Of course, you can watch the results sometime tonight, tomorrow or whenever NBC finally gets around to airing the much-delayed competition.
