The Team USA superstars, winners of gold and silver in Rio, got love from all over social media after their showstopping performance in the women’s individual all-around.
From fellow American athletes to singers and media types, the praise was effusive and deserved.
Here’s a sampling.

Simone Biles has a move named after her. But after that, maybe they should just change the name of women's gymnastics to Biles.

Aly Raisman might be like the sixth-best gymnast ever. Just happened to be in the Simone era. How she's handled this is straight class.

Simone literally leaps thru roof of this place. Incredible how strong, fast & graceful, all in one. 2 golds. And just getting started.
