Jordyn Wieber couldn't hold back the tears after finishing third for the U.S. in the Women's gymnastics qualifications on Sunday. The top 2 scores qualify for the all-around finals and a shot at the individual gold medal.

The reigning world champion's score was 60.032 but that was third best behind Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas.

Wieber was solid on all events with just a couple of slight mistakes on the beam and floor.

Jordyn will compete in the team finals on Tuesday, hoping to help the United States win a gold medal.
