In 2011, night two of the VISA National Championships, Jordyn Wieber was only one event away from securing her first all-around National title.
Jordyn had been quietly drawing attention for years, winning the American Cup twice, once as a junior in 2009 and just earlier that year, beating world champion, Aliya Mustafina. At her first senior national championships, Jordyn managed to withstand the pressure of the spotlight and the expectations, quietly hitting all her routines. Her final routine, her beam routine was Jordyn's magnum opus. She showed her precise, powerful work and ended with a nearly stuck 2 1/2 twist dismount. Her score of 15.3 secured her as the national champion and made her a face to watch.
