Biles, Hernandez perform in women's beam final in Rio

The second of three days of event finals is underway Monday. The men's still rings, men's vault and women's balance beam finals will be contested.


Americans Simone Biles and Laurie Hernandez competed in the women's beam final Monday.

Watch the performances Monday night on KPRC2 and

Women's balance beam

Simone Biles and Laurie Hernandez took home medals in the women's beam finals.

Hernandez earned the silver medal with a score of 15.333, while Biles, who fell off the beam at one point during her routine, took the bronze with a score of 14.7333.

Sanne Wevers of the Netherlands won gold with a score of 15.466.

Biles and Hernandez were the top two qualifiers into the final.

Biles was competing for her fourth Olympic medal of the Rio Games, but fell short of the top spot.

Hernandez, 16, had never performed at a major international competition before the Rio Games.

Wevers won silver at the 2015 World Championships in dramatic fashion; after she got off the beam, she hurried to her notebook to calculate her own difficulty score. When the judges posted a different one, she appealed. They determined that she was right and they were wrong, and raised her score.

Men's still rings

Eleftherios Petrounias of Greece has won the Olympic gold medal in men's still rings.

The reigning world champion put together a precise routine, finishing with a stuck dismount to post a score of 16.000. Arthur Zanetti of Brazil captured silver, delighting the home crowd inside Rio Olympic Arena. The crowd repeatedly shushed itself during Zanetti's set then exploded when his score of 15.766 flashed.

Denis Abliazin of Russia earned bronze

Men's vault

Se Gwang Ri of North Korea picked up his country's second gold medal in Rio, edging Denis Abliazin for gold in the men's vault final Monday.

Ri's two-vault average of 15.691 was better than Abliazin's average of 15.516. The medal for Abliazin was his second in less than an hour. He earned bronze on still rings earlier Monday afternoon.

Japan's Kenzo Shirai earned bronze in a tiebreaker over Romania's Marian Dragulescu. The two vaulters both averaged 15.449 for their two vaults, but Shirai was awarded the bronze because he had the highest score on a single vault.
