USA Women's Gymnastics Team Gold Medal is First in the Olympics Since 1996

Gabby Douglas, Jordyn Wieber, Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney and Kyla Ross – the Fab 5 – just became the first USA women’s gymnastics team to win a gold medal since 1996. USA easily captured the gold, with Russia taking the silver. According to tweets – NBC is tape-delaying the event, and as luck would have it, the online feed froze, so fans couldn’t watch it in real time – Douglas had the high score on the floor exercise, and Raisman solidified the victory with a strong floor performance.

The last USA team to capture the gold was known as the Magnificent 7 – Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Dominique Dawes, Kerri Strug, Amy Chow, Amanda Borden and Jaycie Phelps.
