Simone Biles gets fourth gold medal, fifth Olympic one.

Women’s floor exercise, and I believe that that will do it for Simone Biles. She had a heck of an Olympics, didn’t she? …And subtract one small bobble and it would have been five golds instead of four golds, and one bronze. Such are the vagaries of fluctuations in the space-time continuum, apparently.

I should also note the other four members of the American ‘Final Five” women’s gymnastic team: Gabby Douglas (1 gold), Laurie Hernandez (1 gold, 1 silver), Madison Kocian (1 gold, 1 silver), and team captain Aly Raisman (1 gold, 2 silver). ┬áThat’s a really nice score to rack up, particularly since only two people per country could compete in the individual event finals. And by ‘really nice’ I mean ‘impressive as hell.’ Thanks, team.
