The U.S. women’s gymnastics team is poised to win the Olympic team gold medal in Paris, not just due to talent but also due to significant experience. The team includes four members from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, featuring two all-around Olympic champions and four Olympic medalists, making it the most decorated in U.S. history. Simone Biles, leading the team, boasts 37 Olympic and world championship medals and is tied with Shannon Miller for the most Olympic medals by a U.S. gymnast. Joined by reigning Olympic all-around champion Suni Lee, Olympic silver medalist Jordan Chiles, Olympic gold medalist Jade Carey, and newcomer Hezly Rivera, the team aims for redemption following their silver medal finish in Tokyo.

The U.S. team’s main competitors will be Brazil and China, especially with the Russian gymnasts banned due to the ongoing war in Ukraine. Brazil, with Olympic and world championship experience, is also a strong contender. The U.S. athletes are focused on personal and team redemption, with Biles, Lee, and Carey looking to overcome past challenges and achieve new heights. Despite being the oldest member of the team at 27, Biles is set to break more records, while the younger Rivera relies on her experienced teammates for guidance.
