US Women's Gymnastics Team Qualifies For the Tokyo Olympics Team Final
During this qualification round on July 25, Sunisa Lee, Simone Biles, Jordan Chiles, and Grace McCallum were able to compete on every event, but only the top three scores on each apparatus went into the team total. During the final, the results get a refresh; however, three gymnasts compete on every event and teams cannot drop a score. The four-member US team finished second to Russia (competing under the Russian Olympic Committee) after all of the subdivision sessions played out. Over a point separated the two countries, and according to Sports Illustrated, it was the first time since the 2010 World Championships that the US didn't finish on top in qualifiers. The women on Team USA didn't have their strongest day — there were some uncharacteristic mistakes — but they're looking to defend the country's gold medals from the Rio and London Games on July 27.
