Not to be defeated easily, she put out one of her best balance beam routines yet and managed to take the lead from Mustafina. Later when she was asked how coming in second affected her psyche, Simone said, “Nothing. I just went up there and did the stuff I had to do. It didn’t really bother me.”

As for Aly, she rallied towards a great comeback during the second rotation after only scoring in fourth place. She wowed the crowd with her routine on the beam as well as her floor routine. Aly is no stranger to floor routines. After all, she had won the event back in 2012.

Following their wins, Aly said, “It was very emotional because we finally did it. We went four for four. I’m relieved that it’s over but very proud. It was so special.”
