Jordyn Wieber was one of the best all-arounders in the world. She won the 2011 world title and the senior national all-around title twice, with top-notch difficulty on all four events. Though she missed out on qualifying to the all-around final at the 2012 Games, she was a key part of the Fierce Five's gold medal -- the first Olympic team gold for the US women since 1996.
