RIO DE JANEIRO — The United States won the women’s gymnastics team gold medal Tuesday that had been all but awarded to them before the competition even began. It was how they did it that was remarkable.

In their red, white and blue leotards, the American women gymnasts smashed their astronomical expectations, winning the team gold medal on Tuesday by 8.209 points over their nearest competition. Russia was the best of anyone else, winning the silver medal, and the Chinese took bronze.
