Um, Say Again?

Gabby Douglas grabbed the women’s individual all-around title, giving the United States its third straight gold medalist in that event. 

--NYT. The cutline on that glorious front-page picture (credited to Gregory Bull/Associated Press) calls her "the third straight American to win."

Well, there are only four American who have won the all-around women's gymnastics medal.

Maybe they're telling us something about Mary Lou Retton? Or maybe Nastia Liukin?

(I would hardly suggest that Carly Patterson's engagement is for show. Mary Lou, otoh, is married to someone named Shannon...)
