The U.S. women gymnastics team has been heralded as the heavy favorites, incredibly deep, maybe the best ever. That's a lot of hype and pressure to live up to.
But they more than did, absolutely killing every routine during the team finals, including a vault by McKayla Maroney that is the best vault we have ever seen (and that several commentators thought should have been scored perfect). Congratulations to Aly, Gabby, Kyla, Jordyn and McKayla on their gold medal.
