Jade Carey shines on floor performance at the Tokyo Olympics

American gymnast Jade Carey won the gold medal in the floor exercise.

A 21-year-old boy from Arizona bounced off a terrifying stumbling block in Sunday’s vault final and took the top spot on the floor with a score of 14.366. This medal is the fifth medal claimed by the US Women’s Gymnastics team in Tokyo, with star Simone Biles in four finals to focus on mental health.

Italy’s Vanessa Ferrari, who finished fourth in both the 2008 and 2016 Olympics, has now claimed silver. The dramatic performance of the 30-year-old gathered roars from various federations within the Ariake Gymnasium.

Angelina Melnikova, the team representing the Russian Olympic Committee, and Mai Murakami of Japan won the bronze medal with a score of 14.166. The gymnast had both the same difficulty score and execution score in the routine.
