Better late than never may just be Aly Raisman's favorite new phrase.
The U.S. women's gymnast today added another two medals to her haul: firstly, as the new Olympic gold medalist for the individual floor exercise competition (yay, Ali!) and as a new bronze medalist after appealing her fourth-place finish on the balance beam.
The latter turnaround came after it once again seemed bronze had slipped from her grasp, when judges reevaluated her scores from the nail-biting competition and ultimately raised her execution points, thus placing her ahead of Romania's Catalina Ponor, who had previously placed third. Ironically, the same tie-breaking rules that cost her bronze in last week's all-around earned it for her in today's event.
