The gymnastics teams which will represent the United States in the upcoming 2012 Olympic Games in London have been finalized.

Danell Leyva and John Orozco locked up spots on the men's team Saturday at the U.S. trials. They made the squad based on their results from trials and the Visa Championships and because they also finished in the top three in at least three events.

On Sunday, a selection committee rounded out the group, selecting Jake Dalton, Jonathan Horton and Sam Mikulak to represent the Unites States in London.

Chris Brooks, Steven Legendre and Alexander Naddour were chosen as replacement athletes.

Gabby Douglas, of Virginia Beach, earned the sole guaranteed spot on the women's team with a victory in the two-day all-around at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials, which concluded on Sunday.

It did not take long for the women's selection committee to choose her teammates.

Californians McKayla Maroney and Kyla Ross, as well as Aly Raisman, of Massachusetts, and Jordyn Wieber, of Michigan, completed the squad.

Three replacement athletes were also chosen. Sarah Finnegan, of Missouri, Anna Li, of Illinois, and Pennsylvanian Elizabeth Price made up the reserve unit.
