It looks set to be a thrilling showdown in today’s Women’s Gymnastics Team Final at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, with the USA’s decade-long, vice-like grip on the event in real danger. Read on as we explain how to get a Women’s Gymnastics Team Final live stream and watch the Tokyo 2020 Olympics online from anywhere – and where you can watch absolutely free of charge.
Led by the incredible Simone Biles, the American team have not tasted defeat since 2010, but a mistake-laden showing in the qualifying round means their hopes of retaining the gold won at Rio 2016 are in serious doubt.
Sunday’s qualifying saw the USA finish second behind the Russian Olympic Committee, with Biles penalised on both floor and vault as her team finished on 170.526, behind the leaders’ score of 171.629.
Despite some uncharacteristic slip ups, the US remain favorites to win, with Biles still in contention for six gold medals having reached all five individual finals – starting with Thursday’s all-around.
Great Britain have meanwhile qualified in sixth with Jessica Gadirova into the floor final with the fifth-best score, and will be hoping to push further into a medal position.
The US interest in this event means its set to be one of the most watched of this Olympics – don’t miss a gripping moment by following our guide to watching the Women’s Gymnastics Team Final online and live stream the Tokyo 2020 Olympics from anywhere today.
