Let me give the U.S. women’s gymnastic team kudos for a job well done!
These women showed not only skill, but possess a tenacious spirit that was undaunted by the world's Olympic competition. I remind you that the Gold Medal finish was the first for the U.S. since the Kerri Strug-led squad in the 1996 Olympics.
These women showed true grit and deserve our admiration and praise, for they have made our nation proud. So let me say congratulations to McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, and Jordyn Weiber.
