The Women of Team USA have taken the title the last six times a team competition was held at the World Championships, and in Antwerp, all eyes are on them as the Greatest of All Time returns and leads one of the most decorated teams the U.S. has ever fielded.

In dominating fashion, Team USA took it straight to the top Day 1 of Qualifications, starting on bars and never looking back. In the end the U.S. women led with a margin of over five points ahead of reigning World team silver medalists Great Britain with China, who looked phenomenal on beam, finished Qualifications in third.

Qualified to Wednesday’s Team Final:

  1. United States 171.395
  2. Great Britain 166.130
  3. China 164.963
  4. Brazil 164.297
  5. Italy 162.230
  6. Netherlands 161.197
  7. France – 160.930
  8. Japan 158.497

In her return to the World stage, Simone Biles was nothing short of spectacular on Day 1 of Qualifications, leading the way in the All-Around (58.865), vault (14.949), beam (14.566) and floor (14.633) and setting the pace for Team USA and never looking back. Biles also etched her name in the history books once again by landing the Yurchenko double pike, officially sealing the vault in the Code of Points as the Biles II. It’s the fifth skill to bear Biles’ name in the code and her second vault. 

GBR Ready to Challenge Once Again

Great Britain’s Jessica Gadirova had a great day herself on Day 1, finishing third All-Around (56.766), fourth on vault (14.416), sixth on beam (14.000), and second on floor (14.400). Gadirova will be joined by Ondine Achampong in the All-Around final after Achampong just barley edged out Alice Kinsella, who finished fourth All-Around last year in Liverpool.

Brazil Brings It

Team Brazil brought their own magic today, competing with a fierce energy and enjoyment that lit up the crowd. Their floor rotation in particular was spectacular including an emotional Jade Barbosa who simply couldn’t hide her joy throughout her performance. At 32 years young, Barbosa continues to inspire the entire gymnastics world 16 years after her first World Championships appearance in 2007. No one was smiling bigger than she was – soaking in every moment on what very well could be her new journey to Paris.

Look for an inspired Brazilian team and their star, 2022 World All-Around Champion Rebeca Andrade to put up a challenge in Team Finals, where a 3 up 3 count has definitely proven in the past that anything is possible when it comes to a podium position. They’ve captured our hearts here and just might be on the verge of making history with their first World Championship team medal.

Must-Watch Moments

Algeria’s Kaylia Nemour delivered in a big way on the world’s largest stage, performing her signature bar routine beautifully and providing one of our most memorable moments so far in Antwerp. Nemour won gold at the African Championships earlier this year with a 6.9 D-score—which is the highest D-score in the world. She also took the bronze at the Paris World Cup in September and could be one of the breakout stars here!

Pauline Schaefer-Betz’s beam routine was one of the best of the entire Qualifications round, qualifying her in fourth to the final. The finesse, the striking form and precision, this is what beam should be!

A dream realized! Smiling from start to finish, Aleah Finnegan brought the NCAA atmosphere to Antwerp and her A Game on every event rising to the occasion on what might have been the biggest moment of her year – and maybe even her career to date. With a ticket to the Paris 2024 Olympics on the line in Antwerp, Finnegan delivered beautifully to make her lifelong dream come to fruition.
