Biles and Raisman win gold and silver on floor, Leyva wins two silver medals
- Team USA added four more gymnastics medals to the overall tally on the final day of competition at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
The gymnastics competition at the 2016 Rio Olympics is in the books, and it certainly ended with a bang. Team USA racked up another four medals in the three individual event finals.
Simone Biles sealed her legacy as the greatest by winning her fourth gold medal on the floor exercise. Teammate Aly Raisman, the defending gold medalist in the event, took the silver medal—just like in the all-around.
For the men, Team USA’s Danell Leyva took home two silver medals, on the parallel bars and the horizontal bar. Remember, Leyva was initially named an alternate for the U.S. men’s gymnastics team, but was pulled up to the squad when John Orozco withdrew with an ACL injury. Sam Mikulak finished fourth on the horizontal bar, missing the podium by .066 of a medal.
