No Team Gold, But U.S. Women Show Depth During Tokyo Stay
TOKYO (AP) — The U.S. women’s gymnastics team pulled off a successful stay at the Tokyo Olympics even with Simone Biles taking a step back to focus on her mental health.
The Americans won six medals in all.
That includes an Olympic all-around title for Sunisa Lee.
The success comes at a time when USA Gymnastics is attempting to shift toward a more athlete-centric culture.
