Jordyn Wieber won her second straight national title at the U.S. women's national gymnastics championship on Sunday. She is one of 15 gymnasts who will compete for a spot on the U.S. Olympic squad at trials from June 28-July 1.

Jordyn Wieber won her second consecutive title at the U.S. women's national gymnastics championship on Sunday, but not without a strong challenge from Gabby Douglas. Wieber finished with a final all-around score of 121.900--just 0.200 ahead of Douglas. Alexandra Raisman took third with a score of 120.950.

All three gymnasts are considered favorites to ultimately making the five-person 2012 London Olympics squad after U.S. Olympic trials from June 28-July 21. A total of 15 athletes were invited to the trials, among them 2008 competitors Alicia Sacramone and Nastia Liukin. After the national championship, national team coordinator Martha Karolyi admitted she has a final lineup in mind, though no spot is considered a lock at this point.

"Some of them are steadily staying in place," Karolyi said. "The last, probably two spots, could be interchangeable."

Sacramone and Liukin are both on the fence of making the Olympic squad. Sacramone performed well Sunday, winning the vault and placing third on the beam. Liukin struggled, finishing 19th overall and sixth on the beam.
