U.S. women’s gymnastics team takes the gold!

The US Women's Gymnastics team takes the gold! The first since 1996.

With the Russians on the sidelines crying, the Americans stood at the center of the floor, celebrating and enjoying their moment in history. When the score for captain Aly Raisman flashed, the Americans screamed and a chant of "U-S-A! U-S-A!" rang out around the arena. The women held up their index fingers for the cameras - just in case anyone had a doubt.

There was much speculation about how Jordyn Wieber  would bounce back after her big disappointment not making the cut for the all-around competition--and she showed up in a big way. Her vault was nearly perfect and her attitude adjusted --focused on bringing the gold back home.

 Gabby Douglas was also spectacular along with McKayla Maroney who proved why the Americans were the team to beat.

Shout out to the US women's gymnastics team! U-S-A! U-S-A!
