Aly Raisman :clap: So glad she continued after London, because she was may favourite there. It isn't often that an american women gymnast doesn a second Olympics, so i hope she medals again in Rio. :)

Well, she has a guaranteed gold in the team event. About individual medals, maybe she can win silver/bronze in the All-Around competition and Floor.

She should learn to be amazing on the uneven bars in one month.   The only apparatus where Simone Biles is human

Guaranteed gold? Clearly you haven't watched enough sports yet to know there is no such thing :d:p

Yeah, I know that you don't like when someone thinks that something is "guaranteed", but c'mon, it would be the shock of the century if they loose. As Nastia Liukin commented in the NBC broadcast, they could potentially send two teams and win gold and silver - I don't think this would happen, but they're clearly far ahead of other teams.

After seeing the worlds i dont think that we are so far ahead.  I think its one gymnast that gives such advantage that others cant catch up

You had some little problems on beam, but still ended more than 5 points ahead of China in the final (and 9 points ahead of bronze medallists). I think you're safe, especially seeing that some top teams are having troubles in their selections. I don't know much about China, but I think the podium will look something like USA / China / GB/Russia, although I would love if a "new" nation could medal in the team event.

Of course I was also just kidding a bit, I'm well aware they've got like 85% chance to win the gold (which is rare for any event) :p

 

I just mean there would definitely be bigger shocks possible in my opinion, like Teddy Riner being beaten, and I'm sure the past Olympics have provided bigger shocks throughout the 300-something events.

 

Well if you'd had to name 2-3 teams that could take the gold in case USA fails for some reason (after all, it's gymnastics, there's plenty of room for error), which nations would that be? China and Russia?

^Yet Teddy Riner is just one guy, playing a sport that can be decided with one bad movement. This is a team event of an individual sport, in which several individual performances are counted to make the final score.

 

I see much less room for an upset in the latter.
