Faultless USA grab gymnastics gold and set the standard for Rio


- The Americans put together a total of 181.338, well clear of China and far ahead of surprising Great Britain during two hours that felt like little more than a two-hour exhibition of US dominance.

- Led by 2-time Worlds AA champion Simone Biles, with Olympic AA Champion Gabby Douglas, and Olympic FX Champ Aly Raisman, Maggie Nichols (the only gymnast to do full AA today), and Madison Kocian (Brenna Dowell and Mykayla Skinner alternates).

- China was bad at qualifying but got better (they're actually getting stronger on vault and floor!) and their only mistake was a fall on beam.

- Komova fell off the bars and then she and Paseka and Spiridonova fell off the beam.

- GB overtook Russia in dramatic fashion, after Ellie Downie drilled her vault and then the whole stadium lost its mind.

- What is a Romania, even.

Says that the Americans are only winning because of steroids and that China and GB were lucky (lucky that you fell TWICE smh).

Apology:

Dear friends! I want to apologize for my statements about American girls, about drugs, all my words were spoken on emotions. Of course I haven't any proof and didn't really mean it and so on, I am so sorry. I want to apologize for my character to all of you (Still hasn't apologised to the Chinese and GB girls btw).



Simone Biles, Guardian, ciciginastica: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, wogymnast

Komova ain't shit tbh. Aliya Mustafina put the Russian program on her back for the past four years and always guaranteed them at least 1-2 medala despite not having a proper coach and having the Rodienkos breathing down her back, and the only slightly negative thing she's had to say about the Americans is her criticism of the COP and the FIG. She's never made it personal. Anyway it's Simone vs. Gabby for the AA!
