Twenty years ago, seven U.S. teenagers earned the first U.S. Olympic women’s team title, inspiring many of the gymnasts who have now turned America into a burgeoning dynasty in the sport.
Amanda Borden, Amy Chow, Dominique Dawes, Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Jaycie Phelps and Kerri Strug took gold in the Georgia Dome on July 23, 1996.
Today, NBCOlympics.com pays tribute. LINKS:
