At the 2012 London Olympics, Team U.S.A won their first gymnastics gold medal since 1996. Russia took home the silver medal and bronze went to Romania. According to the Olympic format, each team selects three gymnasts for each of the four apparatuses in the final...balance beam, uneven bars, vault and floor. Russia was the stiffest competition for the U.S at the event, but lost their chance at gold during their floor routine, where two of their gymnasts fell.
