Olympic Gymnastics ended for the Americans with the spotlight on Aly Raisman. As reported by usatoday.com, she added a gold and a bronze to her team's medal tally giving them a total of six. And by getting those two decorations of honor, GreenBeanBuddy.com said that she also gave her countrymen more reasons to be proud of the US Gymnast Team.
On the report, it was said that Raisman bagged her two medals on Tuesday. Her gold was for her routine on the floor and the bronze was for her earlier-of-the-day performance on the balance beam. Her capture of those two medals, the report stated, made her the most decorated American gymnast to leave London surpassing the all-around champion Gabby Douglas.
As detailed by the report, Raisman ended her exercise on the floor with a score of 15.600. However, it added that her routine on the beam was originally scored with only 14.966. Nonetheless, an appeal from her coach boosted it up to 15.0966 tying her with Romania's Catalina Poor. But by a small margin in their routine's difficulty, the report stated that the bronze went to the 18-year-old.

“After Jordyn Weiber, Gabby Douglas and McKayla Maroney, it's time for Aly Raisman to hit the spotlight. And it's all thanks to the gold and bronze that she pinned down.
On Tuesday, the 18-year old captain of the US women gymnastics team wrapped up the contest with two medals in addition to the one she got with her teammates. Her latest two were for her performance on the floor and the balance beam. And with those three decorations of honor, she's now the most adorned of the “Fierce Five.”
According to the entertainment and sports news website GreenBeanBuddy, this year's US gymnast team fell short of the 2008's team's medal. While they got six in total, the website shared that the team four years ago brought home ten.
Nonetheless, six medals, including the first all-around and team gold, are more than enough reasons to be proud of the United States Team for gymnastics, said the site. And as it added, Raisman gave more reasons for Americans to feel that pride.
