USA RUS CHN to Olympics

Dream team USA feat. Simone Biles dominated as expected. Is this their best and most balanced team ever?

After that it was close. All 7 teams might be hand wringing — IF only we had done this or that. But all 7 had at least one fall.

3-up, 3-count is challenging psychologically.

Personal shoutout to Team Canada for their historic 4th place finish.

In reality, it’s a near impossible accomplishment to be ranked one of the top 8 teams in the world. Congratulations to all these amazing athletes, their coaches, their support teams and Federations.

Please celebrate tonight.

The other 9 teams will qualify to the Olympics at 2019 Worlds. That happens in the qualifying competition, not the team final.
