SAN JOSE, Calif. – Team USA will send one of its most decorated and competitive women’s gymnastics teams to next month’s Rio 2016 Olympic Games as it attempts to defend its Olympic team gold medal for the first time ever.
Chosen after two intense nights of competition at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials, the team is led by three-time all-around world champion Simone Biles, who is already the most decorated U.S. gymnast and will look to cement her place in history at her Olympic debut in Rio. Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman return to the Olympic team after winning both team and individual golds at the London Olympic Games four years ago. They become the first U.S. women’s gymnasts to make two Olympic teams since Dominique Dawes and Amy Chow did so from 1996 to 2000. Read Team USA’s complete story/bios
