After two rotations, China's Lilin Yang is in the lead for the women's gymnastics all-around. She took the lead on the strength of her bars routine that earned a 16.725. Nastia Liukin is in second by .375, trailed by the surprising Steliana Nistor from Romania, Kesenia Semenova from Russia and Shawn Johnson. Both Johnson and Liukin received surprisingly low scores on the vault and bars. The leaders now head to the balance beam and floor exercise.
