The two girls stunned the world with their amazing performances in the major competition, but they were both lucky to place so high. Coming in to the third rotation, Simone was only in second place, and Aly fourth. Luckily, they both stepped up their games and Simone managed to jump into the first place position while Aly took second by the end of the day. No Cable TV? Relax!

These girls are no stranger to victory. Simone and Aly, along with the rest of Team USA including Laurie Hernandez, Gabby Douglas and Madison Kocian, took the gold for the women’s team gymnastics all-around on Aug. 9. The moment was super special to the girls for several reasons. Firs,t because they will never compete as a team of five again. From now on, Olympic gymnastics competitions will be teams of four people. On top of that, Martha Karolyi, their longtime team coordinator, will be retiring after this year. She has been in charge of the team since 2001 and totally overhauled them, so it was so fitting that they would get gold on her final year at the helm.
