The competitors are in the arena for the final day of individual gymnastics competition, and it's striking how quiet it is.

Gabby Douglas and Jordyn Wieber are going through some warmups on the floor, with Wieber doing her best Rocky impersonation by ripping off pushups and clapping her hands in the middle of each one.

The competitors do not make eye contact, with their teammates or rivals, and hardly a word is being spoken.

It's singular focus, razor sharp concentration. For one more day.
