Russia clinched the silver with 176.688 total points and China won the bronze at 176.003 points.

Simone Biles was the only team member to compete in all four events while Aly Raisman and Laurie Hernandez competed in three (vault, floor and beam) while Gabby Douglas and Madison Kocian only competed in only one event (uneven bars).

Team USA was the overwhelming favorite to win the team competition after the success of the Fierce Five in the 2012 London Olympics. The 2016 team did not disappoint by shattering the competition.

After the final scores were announced, team captain Aly Raisman gathered the team to finally announce the team name. The five women shouted ecstatically, "We are the final five!"

The team dubbed itself as the "Final Five" for two reasons, the first being that they are the last US Olympic Women's Gymnastics team consisting of five, for the team will consist of four for the next Summer Olympics in Tokyo in 2020. The second and main reason for the team name is to honor famed longtime USA Gymnastics coordinator Marta Karolyi since this will be her last Olympics.

With a overwhelming and historic victory, the Final Five will be sure to go down in history as one of the greatest teams in USA Gymnastics, the Olympics and gymnastics in general.
