Simone Biles didn?t just own the floor in the 2016 Rio Olympics Women?s All-Around Final, she also proved her complete dominance in the world of gymnastics yet again with impressive scores that totalled 62.198. She claimed the gold with over two points ahead of fellow Team U.S.A. gymnast, Aly Raisman, with Russia?s Aliya Mustafina finishing in third.
Biles and Team U.S.A. continue to prove their strength and spirit in the field of gymnastics. Team captain Raisman, performed exceptionally well finishing with 60.098 points while Mustafina, who was the 2012 Olympics bronze medallist, nabbed the bronze again with 58.665 points, only .116 ahead of China?s Shang Chunsong.
Biles and Raisman were both excellent on the floor, they captivated the Rio Olympics crowd and claimed the gold and silver for Team U.S.A. Biles also dominated the beam and the vault but was in second place behind Mustafina in the second rotation. She took the lead again after the third rotation and garnered an insane 15.933 on the floor. Raisman?s score of 15.433 on the floor would have been tough to beat for other gymnasts other than Biles. She finished her routine with tears of joy.
This is Raisman?s second Olympics appearance and it has been her long-time goal to win an all-around Olympics medal as she lost to Mustafina for the bronze on a tiebreaker at the 2012 London Olympics, LA Times reports.?
19-year-old Biles came to Rio as the most-decorated gymnast of her generation, and now she fulfils her destiny as the gold medallist for the 2016 Olympics Women?s All-Around competition.
