Gymnastics: Team USA Take Team Gold
At just 4 feet 9 inches tall, Simone Biles might be the smallest American Olympian in Brazil, but she’s threatening to become Team USA’s biggest star of Rio 2016.
Biles, competing in her first Olympic Games, led the charge as the US women won gold in the women’s team competition Tuesday.
It marks the start of what could be a gold rush for the 19-year-old Biles, who is bidding to take home five gold medals.
It also meant the US retained the title it won in London four years ago. It is unbeaten in team competitions during that period.
