Dawes: 'Fab Five' US gymnastics team out from 1996 shadow

Two American gymnasts are looking for redemption tonight in the men's individual all-around. They follow the women's team's incredible performance last night in London.

The 'fab five' just won the second American gold for women's team gymnastics in the Olympics. The first was in 1996 when Dominique Dawes and her teammates took the top spot in the Atlanta games.

Dawes is now an Olympic analyst for, and a member of the First Lady's Olympic Delegation.

This morning on "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien," Dawes reacts to Team USA coach's claim the 2012 gymnastics team is better than 1996 team.
