The United States gymnastics team earns a silver medal at the Olympics and appeared to have a shot at gold with the strong performance of Teri Humphrey of Bates City on the balance beam and on the uneven bars. The team score was pulled down when the top two members of the team made mistakes in their routines. Humphrey will have another chance for gold medals in individual events later in the Olympics when she competes on the uneven bars. Missouri’s other gymnast, Courtney McCool of Lee’s Summit, also gets a silver medal because she’s part of the U-S team, although she failed to perform well enough in the preliminaries to reach the finals in either team or individual competition.
