Simone Biles won Team USA another gold


Apparently, two gold medals were not enough for Simone Biles this year. 

The 19-year-old earned a 15.966 for the gold in women's vault, more than .7 points above her nearest competitor. Russia's Maria Paseka took silver, and Giulia Steingruber of Switzerland took bronze. 

Dipa Karmakar, the first female Indian gymnast at the Olympics, took fourth.
