The Americans breezed through qualifying in women's gymnastics Sunday, throwing down a challenge to Russia, Romania and defending Olympic champion China in the process.
For Jordyn Wieber, there won't be a chance to add an Olympic gold medal to a world title.
The Americans finished with 181.863 points and have a big lead atop the standings, though the Russians, 2010 world champions and runners-up last year, Romanians and Chinese must still compete. The team final is Tuesday night.
Wieber was only the third-best American behind Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas, and countries are limited to two in the all-around final.
