The so-called “Fierce Five” of Gabby Douglas, Jordyn Wieber, Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney and Kyla Ross routed silver medalist Russia and everybody else on August 1 on their way to their first Olympic title in women's gymnastics since 1996. Their score of 183.596 was a whopping five points better than Russia's, and set off a debate over whether this is the best U.S. team of all time.
