Gymnastics competition at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games is scheduled to continue Aug. 14 with a quartet of individual event finals featuring a host of American athletes. So which competitors earned the right to go for gold on the uneven bars, pommel horse, women's vault, and men's floor exercise? Read on for a look at the rosters, as determined by 2016 Olympic gymnastics results notched during the qualification round.

World event co-champion Madison Kocian posted the highest qualifying mark (15.866), while defending Olympic title holder Aliya Mustafina of Russia placed second (15.833) to earn the chance to earn a repeat victory.
