They did it. And they did it well (beating second place Russia by over five points and third place Romania by over seven). Congratulations to Team USA’s women’s gymnastics team on winning team gold (for the first time since 1996)! Magnificent Seven then, Fab Five now. So many kinds of awesome.

My mom wrote this to me this morning –  “They didn’t choke, they don’t look like little emaciated underfed girls, and they really stepped up when the pressure was on.  I can’t believe the hard tricks that they all do now……watching them last night brought back lots of gym memories.”

Couldn’t agree more with all of it. BOOM!
