After taking Gold in the team competition four years ago in London, the United States gymnastics team is golden once again.


  Team USA posted a total score of 184.897, which put them 8.894 points ahead of second silver medalist, Russia, in the landslide defeat.

Just as they did in the qualifying round, where they led by almost 10 points, Team USA rolled to the easy victory, solidifying their dominance over the game.

The team, comprised of Olympic veterans Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas, along with first time Olympians Simone Biles Laurie Hernandez and Madison Kocian are now and will forever be a team at the top of the record books in the sport of gymnastics.
