If Simone Biles’ appearance on the vault is any indication of how American women will fare tonight, Americans have a huge problem. She planned to do a Yurchenko jump with 2½ twists, but stepped out at the last minute and only performed 1½ twists. And then on the landing she stumbled forward. This is incredibly unusual for her and the watered-down vault is a huge blow to the US team. The vault got a 5.0 for difficulty – that’s 0.8 lower than the Amanar. Her total score was 13,766 – extremely rare for someone of her track record and ability.
