Team USA won the gold medal, powering ahead of the competition early on and finishing with Simone Biles' absolutely incredible floor routine.
Twitter users just couldn't believe how good the Americans were.
The impression I'm getting from this #Rio2016 team gymnastics final is that it is not fair for people to have to compete against the US

Another shock was the Chinese athletes who looked much younger than their actual age.
They took the bronze medal, behind the Russians who took silver.

I don't care what the broadcast says, some of these gymnastics girls are 4-years-old.

What wasn't a shock though was the fact that most people didn't really know what was going on.
Swear the Olympic gymnastics commentators just make up the move names like "lovely Jaegerbomb oh and straight into a perfect lazy Sunday"

Tough luck to Team GB, who came fifth after a fantastic effort.
