Look at us, a news site writing about news.

On Thursday afternoon, American heroes Simone Biles and Aly Raisman took home gold and silver in the individual all-around competition, solidifying the Final Five as some of the best tumblers around, and giving Team USA architect Martha Karolyi a very special going away present. Russia’s Aliya Mustafina took home bronze.

Raisman and Biles performed basically flawlessly, with Biles earning an absurd score of 15.933 in her floor routine for a total score of 62.198. Raisman received a floor score of 15.433 and overall of 60.098. After the competition was over, the usually chill Biles got choked up, so did a USA coach Aimee Boardman, and so did I!

With her win, Biles joined the ranks of Gabby Douglas, Nastia Liukin, Carly Patterson, and Mary Lou Retton (other USA all-around gold winners) and solidified her reputation as being the best in the world.

Simone Biles is the best gymnast of all time. Male or female. And I’m SO happy Aly medaled too. Great day for USA Gymnastics!
