2016 Olympic Gymnastics Results: Women’s Team Final

As expected, the USA captured gold in the women’s gymnastics team event Tuesday.

And it wasn’t close. Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, Laurie Hernandez and Madison Kocian, who dubbed themselves the “Final Five” after their win, somehow improved upon their dominant showing during qualification, posting the highest score on each apparatus to top second place by more than eight full points.

Silver went to Russia, while China took bronze. China was positioned in second for much of the competition, but the Russians moved in front at the last possible moment thanks to a huge 15.7 on the vault from Maria Paseka.

Here are the final results:

1 USA 46.866 46.499 45.533 45.999 184.897

How Scoring Works

Eight countries–USA, China, Russia, Great Britain, Brazil, Germany, Japan and Netherlands–will compete for the three medals.

Each of those eight countries will send three gymnasts to each event (vault, uneven bars, balance beam, floor exercise), with every score being counted towards the team’s total. More information can be found here.

One rotation will consist of two countries going through one apparatus. They’ll then move, together with the same country, to the next apparatus for the next rotation, and so on.

Here’s the start list for each rotation:


Rotation 1

Vault: USA and China

Uneven Bars: Russia and Great Britain

Balance Beam: Brazil and Germany
