A huge congratulations goes out the U.S. women’s gymnastics teams for taking home a gold medal yesterday afternoon! The medal was their first Olympic team title since 1996 and boy were they happy.
The United States beat Russia by 5.066 points, leaving the Russians with the silver medal and Romania with bronze.
The U.S. team celebrated as the rest sobbed at their loss, but no one was happier than gymnast Jordyn Wieber. Her, along with Gabby Douglas, sparkled during the competition, but the win was bittersweet for Wieber seeing as she failed to qualify for the Olympic all-around final.
