Just an hour after winning the bronze medal in the women's beam competition, the Massachusetts native brought home her second gold medal of these Olympic games with a win in the floor exercise.

Raisman's gold medal winning score of 15.600 was a full four-tenths of a point in front of silver medalist Catalina Ponor of Romania. Aliya Mustafina of Russia won bronze.

American Jordan Wieber finished 7th in the floor exercise. The pre-Olympic favorite failed to win any individual medals.

Add in her gold with the Fierce Five, and she leaves London with three medals, most of any of the Americans. It's the first Olympic gold on floor exercise for a U.S. woman.
