The U.S. women's gymnastics team won its third straight world title on Tuesday night, going nearly mistake free to easily grab the gold and state a case as the heavy favorite to repeat next summer at the 2016 Olympics. Anchored by two-time world champion Simone Biles on vault, the Americans took an early lead then watched everyone else fall to the wayside. The title is the fifth world crown for the U.S., all of them coming after Martha Karolyi took over as national team coordinator in late 2000.
