Suni Lee - All-Around
Jade Carey - Floor Exercise
Women's Team (Grace, Jordan, Simone, Suni)
MyKayla Skinner - Vault
Suni Lee - Uneven Bars
Simone Biles - Balance Beam
The American all-around streak continues.
Suni Lee was crowned the Olympic all-around champion after nailing her uneven bars set and hitting her floor routine in the final rotation of the individual competition.
Jade Carey, who took reigning champion Biles' spot in the individual final after Biles withdrew from the all-around to focus on her mental health, recovered well from a fall on beam in the third rotation to finish strong on floor and end the competition in eighth.

After the first event (vault), Simone had to drop out of the remainder of the competition. Team USA battled head to head with Russia and earned their Silver medal! It was amazing to watch them cheer for each other and we could not be more proud of them and especially our very own Grace. She truly is Amazing!! #tctproud #teamUSA
