U.S. lineup set for women's gymnastics qualification

Jordyn Wieber, Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman will be the United States' all-around competitors in women's gymnastics at the London Olympics, while the injured McKayla Maroney is competing in the vault.

USA Gymnastics released its women's lineup for qualifying on Sunday, when the Americans will be in the third of five subdivisions. Qualifying rounds will determine which teams and individuals advance to the finals.

Maroney aggravated a previous toe fracture in training last week, and had bruising and swelling. USA Gymnastics president Steve Penny said she trained well and is ready to compete. She is a favorite to win gold in the vault after doing so at the 2011 World Championships in Tokyo.

Wieber is a threat for the all-around title, having won at worlds in Tokyo, as well as the Pacific Rim Championships and the Visa Championships this year. Douglas took silver at the Visa Championships while helping the U.S. to team gold at worlds last year.

Kyla Ross will compete in the uneven bars, balance beam and floor exercise for the Americans.

The women's team final takes place July 31, while the individual all-around medals will be awarded August 2. Apparatus finals are scheduled from August 5-7.
