BEIJING, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- "I think they performed pretty well today. I am not as good as them," said Yang Yilin of China on Friday.

Yang Yilin won the bronze medal of the women's all-around in the National Indoor Stadium. Nastia Liukin of the United States edged her compatriot Shawn Johnson to win the gold medal.

The American duo let the hosts' gold rush in the gymnastics pause after China wrapped up all the first three titles (men's team, women's team, men's all-round.)
