Olympic Women's Gymnastics 2016: Vault Medal Winners, Scores and Results

Published by Bleacher Report on Sun, 14 Aug 2016

The United States' Simone Biles claimed a third gold medal of the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday, trouncing the field in the women's vault final with a score of 15.966.Russia's Maria Paseka claimed silver with 15.253, just edging Switzerland'sGiuliaSteingruber into third place after two bold vaults.Biles now has gold medals in the women's team event, individual all-around and vault and still is a favourite to win two more in floor and beam.Here are the results from the medalists in Sunday's final:Full results at Rio2016.com. The first three gymnasts to go in the vault final made costly mistakes. North Korea'sHong Un-jong fell on her second vault before 16-year-old Canadian Shallon Olsen faulted on landing in her first attempt.Oksana Chusovitina, 41, then over-rotated attempting a hugely challenging vault and was forced to do a forward roll on landing that led to big deductions.Wang Yan of China, going fourth, produced a clean pair of vaults to go into top spot but was topped by Steingruber after the Swiss posted a score of 15.216.India's Dipa Karmakar could not breach the medal positions, as she landed deep in her second vault going big with a tough attempt.Russia's Paseka did, though, go into the gold-medal position after her two vaults despite splitting her legs in the first attempt.Nonetheless, the seven gymnasts before Biles were always realistically competing for the silver medal.Going last, the 19-year-old superstar opened with an almost perfect vault, a tiny step on landing the only error as she earned a 15.900 score.A massive second vault then scored 16.003 to win Biles the gold by a huge margin.
