Simone Biles, Team USA gymnastics dominate in Rio
Another one-two punch for Team USA gymnastics in Rio, a first ever in floor exercise, as Houston's Simone
Biles took the gold on floor routine, and her teammate, Aly Raisman, won silver.

Biles nailed what's come to be known as her signature event, scoring a stunning 15.966. Raisman put out her best floor yet in Rio with a 15.5.
The Americans went first and second. Britain's Amy Tinkler took the bronze.
Biles becomes the first woman in history to win four gymnastics gold medals in a single games.
"I just gave it all I had left in me, because it was the last final, and it was my last floor routine, so I was super excited to close it out on a good note," Biles told KPRC Channel 2.
It was also a big night for Team USA men's gymnastics. Danell Leyva won silver medals on high bar and parallel bars. Teammate Sam Mikulak finished a respectable fourth place on high bar.
Americans Christian Taylor and Will Claye grabbed a one-two finish in triple jump in track events.
But, there was a stunner on Copacabana Beach as Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross lost in straight sets.
They will play for a bronze medal Wednesday.
