Simone Biles Takes the Gold

Simone Biles Rocks the Women's Individual All-Around
US Gymnast, Simone Biles wins gold medal in Women’s Individual All-Around.
Biles won the event with a combined score of 62.198 during the competition on Thursday. Her U.S. teammate Aly Raisman won the silver medal, and Aliya Mustafina of Russia took the bronze.

The Olympic gold and silver medalists sobbed in each other’s arms as the Brazilian crowd at Rio Olympic Arena rained down cheers on them.

“We had both won gold in that moment,” said Biles, “and to both be from the United States and get to represent, I don’t think there’s any better feeling.”

That feeling included Americans taking the top two spots on the podium for the first time since 2008.

Go team USA!
