TOKYO (AP) -- American Jordyn Wieber has another gold medal, beating Russia's Viktoria Komova for the all-around title at the world gymnastics championships Thursday night.
Wieber, who led the Americans to the team title two days earlier, won despite making mistakes on uneven bars and floor exercise. She finished with 59.382 points, just 0.033 ahead of the Russian. China's Yao Jinnan won the bronze, and Aly Raisman of the United States was fourth.
Wieber went into the final rotation a half-point behind Komova, the Youth Olympic Games champion, and seemed resigned to silver after going out of bounds on her third tumbling pass. But Komova's routine was less difficult and didn't have the same spark as Wieber's.
