Gym Flash: U.S. Wins Bronze
The U.S. men's gymnastics team, whose roster has undergone massive upheaval in the past two weeks, won the bronze medal in the team competition this morning.
Favored China won the gold, and Japan took the silver.
China's score of 286.125 was more than seven points ahead of Japan, the defending Olympic champion.
The Americans were in the running for the silver until their last two events, but it was a solid finish for a team that had to replace not one, but two injured Hamm brothers in the 10 days before the games began.
This was the second straight Olympic medal for the Americans, who finished with 275.850 points.
