US Women Take Team Gymnastics Gold

The US women's gymnastics team -- coined the 'Fierce Five' -- took home the gold medal at the final team competition.

The U.S. Women's Gymnastics team made history today by winning the USA's second consecutive Olympic team title at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The USA clinched the gold medal with a score of 184.897, more than an eight-point margin of victory. Russia earned the silver medal (176.688) and China took bronze at 176.003.

The gold-medal finish is the seventh-consecutive Olympic team medal for the U.S. women and the third women's team gold in U.S. history. The Magnificent Seven clinched the first-ever team gold medal for the U.S. women at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. Sixteen years later, the "Fierce Five" earned team gold at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Additionally, the U.S. is the first country to win back-to-back women's team titles since Romania earned gold in 2004.
