U.S. women qualify first; Wieber out of all-around

The women qualified first for Tuesday’s team final, but that was the secondary news.
Jordyn Wieber, the 17-year-old from DeWitt, Mich., who was the defending world all-around champion and a co-favorite for Olympic gold in that event with her teammate Gabrielle Douglas, made uncharacteristic mistakes on vault, uneven bars and floor exercise and was unable to qualify for the all-around final.
