I just realized that in all of my excitement yesterday I never posted the results of the Women’s Gymnastics All-Around Finals. I don’t have all of the numbers in front of me, but, really, who cares about numbers? All that matters is Simone Biles took GOLD and Aly Raisman took SILVER!! Congratulations ladies; you have amazed the world and upped the bar in women’s gymnastics. The Final Five will definitely live in infamy with the Fierce Five and Magnificent Seven.
The women of USA’s gymnastics team celebrate as they cinch the Team Gold yesterday in Rio.
8 points behind Team USA, Russia took the Silver and China the Bronze.
Today, the women rest before Simone Biles and Aly Raisman compete in the All-Around Finals tomorrow.
After 4 Subdivisions of competition, Team USA sits comfortably in first with a 10-point lead over the rest of the teams. All of our girls put in solid performances earning at least one individual event final each, in addition to securing Team USA a spot in the team finals.
