The USA has now won the last three women’s World team titles (2011, 2014, 2015) and the team gold at the 2012 Olympic Games. This brings the USA’s total World team titles to five. Romania was the last country to win three consecutive women’s World team titles as part of their string of five in 1994, 1995, 1997, 1999 and 2001.

Two-time World all-around champion Simone Biles of Spring, Texas/World Champions Centre, made personal history with the team’s gold. She now ties Alicia Sacramone as the U.S. gymnasts with the most World medals at 10, and broke her own mark as the gymnast with the most World gold medals, adding her seventh.

In addition to Biles, the women on the U.S. squad are: Gabrielle Douglas of Virginia Beach, Va./Buckeye Gymnastics, Brenna Dowell of Odessa, Mo./GAGE; Madison Kocian of Dallas/WOGA; Maggie Nichols of Little Canada, Minn./Twin City Twisters; Aly Raisman of Needham, Mass./Brestyan’s American Gymnastics; and MyKayla Skinner of Gilbert, Ariz./Desert Lights, who is the alternate.
