Unfortunately, as Cosmopolitan reports, Gabby Douglas, who wowed crowds in the 2012 Summer Olympics, taking home the gold in the individual and team all-around competitions, will not be able to defend her title thanks to the "two per country" rule.

According to the report, Douglas finished with the third-highest score overall in the qualifiers with a score of 60.131, just trailing teammates Simone Biles (62.366) and Aly Raisman (60.607).

The two-per-country rule was reportedly put in place by the international gymnastics federation to encourage diversity in gymnastics and also to keep certain countries from dominating the competition, the site notes.

Nonetheless, although we'll miss Douglas in the all-around finals, we will still be able to witness her uncanny grace and athleticism as she competes in the uneven bars final, alongside teammate Madison Kocian.
