Video: An American Gymnast Experienced a Painful Faceplant During the Olympic Trials Last Night

Unfortunately, the 2008 Olympic gold medalist won't be going to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London later this month after completely botching this landing during the Olympic trials last night. But, the real tragedy is that her epic fail has turned her into a YouTube sensation right now for all the wrong reasons. Double ouch.
