Simone Biles, Aly Raisman Have Tearful Embrace After Winning Olympic Medals

Simone Biles and Aly Raisman spent their Thursday afternoon at the Olympics dominating the women's gymnastics' all-around competition. A couple of days after the United States took home the gold medal for the team women's gymnastics' competition, Biles and Raisman won the gold and silver medals, respectively, in the individual all-around competition.

Simone Biles, perhaps the greatest female gymnast of all-time, secured the gold medal following her floor routine, while Aly Raisman, who missed out on an individual medal at the 2012 Olympics, won the silver medal. Biles won the gold with a score of 62.198 and Raisman secured silver with 60.098 points. Aliya Mustafina of Russia won the bronze with a score of 58.665 points.

Biles, 19, and Raisman, 22, had a touching, tearful embrace when they both realized they had won gold and silver, respectively.

Here's video of the moment they learned they'd won medals.

This is the fourth straight Olympics in which an American has won the female all-around competition.
