Not to gloat, but ... THE USA IS BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE ON THE PLANET IN WOMEN'S GYMNASTICS!!!!

The U.S. women's gymnastics team didn't just win GOLD in the team competition ... they CRUSHED the competition ... slaughtering Russia by a whole 5 points.

Just to compare, China beat the US back in 2008 by 2ish points ... in what was then considered to be a pretty dominant performance. So, 5 points is HUUUUUGE.

It's a big deal ... the team -- made up of Jordyn Wieber, Gabrielle Douglas, Alexandra Raisman, Kyla Ross, and McKayla Maroney -- was favored to win ... and they didn't disappoint, scoring 183.596 today. Russia came in at 178.5 (suck it).

Romania won bronze.

The last gold medal was won at the Atlanta Games in 1996 -- with the team of Amanda Borden, Amy Chow, Dominique Dawes, Shannon Miller, Dominique Moceanu, Jaycie Phelps ... and of course ... Olympic hero Kerri Strug.



It's a beautiful day for America. Now excuse us while we set off some fireworks, wrap ourselves in the Declaration of Independence, and drive our Chevy into the sunset.

Wow! Big surprise! Another example of US arrogance! If the Russian gymnast hadn't crashed in the floor routine a very different result would have occurred. But, of course, the US media turns that into total dominance instead of what it actually was, which was the luck of the draw. On any given day, with any given athlete, anything can and does happen. This explains why US athletes are so crushed when they win anything but gold or, god forbid, win nothing at all. Because the media trashes them or their opponents or finds some excuse as to why they didn't live up to the media's ridiculous expectations.

No kidding. Thanks a lot!! Wanted to catch up on my celebrity gossip before watching our chiquitas go for the gold. You had to go and ruin the surprise. You should NOT post sports results when they are being played on tv in U.S. hours after the event takes place!!

Ditto some of the other comments. Stop reporting olympic news damn it! You're a tabloid site so stay a tabloid site. I was avoiding all the sports and headline news sites for that very reason, I don't wanna know the result until I get home to watch it on dvr! Thank you!

Dear TMZ, I go to your site for nonsense celebrity gossip; for example, I found your article on Vanessa Bryant blowing through Kobe's money the second she landed in London especially riveting. Please be kind and do post Olympics spoilers BEFORE they air on tv.....thanks a lot jerks!

I couldn't help thinking that those gray jackets worn on the podium make the US appear to be a drab communist country. Who in the world designed those? I thought our country's colors are Red, White and Blue. They are absolutely awful looking. However, way to go gymnastics team, you did a great job!
