From the United States, Jordyn Wieber was a favorite to win the all-around competition. The top 24 gymnasts from the qualification round move on to the individual all-around competition. However, no more than 2 gymnasts per country can compete in the all-around competition. Even though Jordyn placed 4th in the qualification, she was not eligible to compete in the all-around competition because teammates Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas placed higher, eliminating Jordyn from the competition due to the 2 per country rule. This came as a huge shock to the United States and even to other countries at the Olympics. This incident has led many to protest that the 2 per country rule be changed.
