The United States women's gymnastics team already calls itself the fiercest squad the sport has ever seen.

If they can add some more gold around their necks in the all-around competition today, they may be able to call themselves the greatest.

Fresh off USA Gymnastics' first team gold since 1996, Virginia Beach native Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman will try to best Russia's Victoria Komova in the individual competition.

"It is very special," Douglas says of the team gold. "It gives us the momentum."

Douglas will also compete for the gold on the balance beam and uneven bars, while Raisman is competing on beam and the floor exercise.
