Olympics 2012: 5 Things You May Have Missed From Sunday's Games (VIDEO)


Sunday night's competition at the 2012 London Olympics included results that were both expected and surprising.

Perhaps most surprising was McKayla Maroney's disappointing performance in the Women's Individual Vault finals, in which the 16-year-old favorite stumbled on her second routine to finish second.

Also surprising was the Gold medal final in men's tennis, in which Andy Murray upset Roger Federer just one month the finals at Wimbledon didn't go his way.

What else went down on Sunday?

Check out Celebuzz's full Olympics rundown, below:

1.) McKayla Maroney Stumbles to Silver In a rare moment, American gymnast and heavy favorite McKayla Maroney fell on one of two routines to finish second in the Individual Vault finals. Sandra Raluca Izbasa of Romania finished in first.

2.) Andy Murray Beats Roger Federer About a month after losing to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon finals, Andy Murray finally triumphed over the Gold medal favorite, 6-2, 6-1, 6-4.

3.) Serena Williams Wins Gold -- Twice! Tennis legend Serena Williams will take two Gold medals back with her to the United States, one for the Women's Singles final, in which she beat Maria Sharapova 6-0, 6-1, and one for the Women's Doubles final, in which she and sister Venus defeated Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic 6-4, 6-4.

4.) Usain Bolt Remains World's Fastest Man As expected, Usain Bolt of Jamaica dominated the Men's 100-meter final on Sunday, taking the Gold with a time of 9.63 seconds. Yohan Blake of Jamaica (9.75 seconds) and American Justin Gatlin (9.79 seconds) finished in second and third place, respectively.

5.) Sanya Richards-Ross Stages Major Comeback Four years after winning a disappointing Bronze, in Beijing, American runner Sanya Richards-Ross finally got her Gold medal in the 400-meter finals, finishing the race in a comfortable 49.55 seconds.

    I still can't get over how they robbed this girl of her rightful win. It's a travesty.

    Last time I checked, falling flat on your tush didn't get you a medal at the Olympics, so McKayla should be pretty darn grateful for the silver. I was embarrassed that her attitude on the stand, cold shoulder to the other gymnast and not even saying congrats to the gold medalist was representing the US. She should be ashamed of how she handled herself.

    How is Usain arrogant? Do you know the meaning of that word Ms Collette Ojeda? Oh please. How does McKayla needs to be a good sport? Can you do half the things she does and can you survive the training hours she's done? Be greatful for everything.

    McKayla needs lessons on being a good sport. That sourpuss face is yuck! I almost want to snatch that medal off her because she's not representing us very well. At le you made it up there girl! Serena rocks! And Bolt needs to learn a little thing called humility. His arrogance is killing me.
