Chess on Ice, as some call it, was invented in Scotland more than 500 years ago.
LONDON (AP) -- Make it a pair of golds for Gabby Douglas, who added the all-around title to the one she won with the U.S. team Tuesday night.
Douglas became the third straight American to win gymnastics' biggest prize, taking the lead on the very first event Thursday night and never really letting anyone else get close.
She finished with a score of 62.232, less than three-tenths ahead of Viktoria Komova of Russia.
Douglas brought the house down with her energetic floor routine, and U.S. teammates Jordyn Wieber, McKayla Maroney and Kyla Ross jumped to their feet and cheered when she finished.
Douglas flashed a smile and coach Liang Chow lifted her off the podium.
Aly Raisman almost added to her Olympic medal haul, but lost the bronze in the all-around on a tiebreaker.
Raisman and Russian Aliya Mustafina finished with the same score of 59.566, but Mustafina was awarded the bronze because the total of her three highest scores were more than half a point better than Raisman's.
The U.S. women's team captain says she is upset but not angry.
She says being the fourth-best gymnast in the world is something to be proud of and she does, after all, already have a gold medal from the team event earlier in the week.
Raisman, who finished with the second-best score during qualifying, struggled on beam. She put her hands down following a front somersault, a rare miscue on her strongest event.

Tulsan Hans Helmrich has been a sports fan all his life. So you could imagine his excitement when at age 13, he was picked to be a ball-boy for the USA Men's basketball team for the Olympics.
Shots from the top of the key. Shots from behind the backboard. Shots that were bounced off the floor. Ivory Latta of the Tulsa Shock simply couldn't miss!
The 100-meter dash pits the world's eight fastest men together as they race for the title of "World's Fastest Man." That's not something Big Al nor I will be confused with. But it didn't stop us from trying!
The cable ratings for archery were huge and some attribute the sport's rise in popularity to the recent The Hunger Games movie.
The sport of high jump changed forever back in 1968. That's when Dick Fosbury came up with the jump that bears his name - the Fosbury Flop. So, that begs the question, can Big Al and Cayden pull it off?
The backstroke looks like it's a nice leisurely stroke, with the opportunity to possibly catch some rays at the same time. Not quite.
