part2Jade Carey medal-winning performance was far from predictable, as she had a rocky start to these Games.
The gymnast took a hard fall off the balance beam in the all-around competition earlier in the
Olympics. She was participating in the event as a replacement for Biles, and wound up finishing eighth outof 24 in that event .But in the floor qualifiers, Carey showed promise. The Arizona native finished third, behind only Ferrari and Biles. Then, on Monday morning, she followed up on that with a winning performance.
Biles will have one last shot at individual gold — albeit in a different event — on Tuesday morning in the balance beam final.
