Douglas wins women's all-around gold & Phelps nabs his 16th gold medal- Amanda Davies reports

Sixteen-year-old American gymnast Gabby Douglas became the third straight American and the first African-American to win the women's all-around gold medal last night in London.

Beginning with a stellar vault and ending with a dazzling floor routine, Douglas cemented her legacy and completed her meteoric rise from unfocused teen to Olympic champion.

Swimmer Michael Phelps also avenged his earlier loss to fellow American Ryan Lochte, winning his 16th gold medal in the 200-meter individual medley.

CNN's Amanda Davies discusses these big wins on Early Start this morning and explains what's coming up in the Olympics over the weekend.
