However, Team USA faltered and finished fifth in the event. China won the gold medal with an overall score of 275.997. Japan took the silver medal with an overall score of 271.952 and Great Britain claimed the bronze medal with a score of 271.711
Team USA finished its final round with a final score of 269.952, finishing behind Ukraine, who took fourth place with 271.526. Team USA's gymnasts are not yet finished -- gymnast Danell Leyva and John Orozco will both be competing in the all-around competition on Wednesday.
