To no one's surprise, Simone Biles won her third gold medal of the Rio Olympics, this time in the vault final. She soundly beat her competitors, many of whom tried huge vaults in an attempt to beat her, when she put up two nearly perfect vaults.

In the men's pommel horse, U.S.'s Alex Naddour had his best performance of the Games so far, scoring a 15.700 on the pommel horse, which was good enough for bronze behind Great Britain's Max Whitlock and Louis Smith.

Madison Kocian won her second medal of the Rio Olympics in the uneven bars behind Russia's Aliya Mustafina. Teammate Gabby Douglas finished seventh to close out her second Olympics.

The events will be aired on NBC tonight starting at 7 p.m. ET, but you can read a recap of the action in our live blog below.
