Team USA’s Simone Biles and Aly Raisman took home gold and silver today at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.

The gymnasts earned the medals in the Individual All-Around finals.

Biles earned gold with a score of 62.198, and Raisman took silver with 60.098.

It was an emotional victory for the women, who dissolved into tears and hugged after winning their medals. Biles even asked Raisman to join her on the victor’s stage.

Teammates Gabby Douglas, Madison Kocian and Laurie Hernandez were in the crowd cheering them on.

Earlier this week the team took home gold for the Women’s Team All-Around.

It is reported that U.S. athletes earn a $25,000 bonus when they win an Olympic gold medal, $15,000 for a silver medal, and $10,000 for a bronze medal at the Rio Olympics. The bonuses are much less than the Olympic medalists from Singapore, who earn $753,000 when they win gold!
