USA Wins Gold Medal in Women's Team Gymnastics Finals at 2012 London Olympics
The women's gymnastics team for the USA has not won a gold medal in the team finals since 1996, so a lot of pressure was on them in today's competition.
After a sad night for Jordyn Wieber on Sunday, when she failed to make into the individual all-around finale, she was back and better than ever today, along with her teammates: Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Kyla Ross and McKayla Maroney. And then they took home the gold!
The last time this happened was back in 1996 in Atlanta when Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Dominique Dawes, Kerri Strug, Amy Chow, Amanda Borden and Jaycie Phelps won it for the first time and were nicknamed "The Magnificent Seven."
And Dominique already congratulated them and said she was passing the torch: "Congratulations Team USA! It's a GOLD! Proud!Passing the torch to 2012 Team USA Women!
