Congratulations to the 2016 U.S. Women’s Gymnastics team ( now known as “The Final Five) who not only WON gold, but destroyed the competition!!! #USA #USA #USA!!!
Together they competed in bars, vault, beam, and the floor exercise. They are all so good that not only did Team USA have the top two highest scores, but the top three. Only two team members can advance to the gymnastics all around and it just so happened that the U.S.’ two came out on top.
Team Captain Ally “Redemption” Raisman came back to win silver in the all around.
World champion Simone Biles won gold in the all around.
U.S. Gymnastics team members’ Madison Kocian, and Laurie Hernandez were on their feet when the two won gold and silver.
Olympic gold-medalist Gabby Douglas sat there clapping.
Now it’s one thing to not put your hand over your heart during the National Anthem. A lot is going on up there, but no reason to come across salty when your teammates win.
I get it the cameras are constantly in your face, and your every move is being watched 24/7, but that’s exactly why you need to show excellence.
The Internet agreed…
Now according to Aly, Gabby sent her a text, and the team swarmed them with love after her silver win and Simone’s gold win.
Think of all the little girls watching and dreaming to one day be up on that podium. I’m sure Gabby is happy for her teammates, but it doesn’t look like it when you sit there and show no excitement for your teammates.
I love watching Gabby Douglas, she’s amazing at the sport, but it’s a team sport. Show support.
