U.S. gymnasts take home a few medals

After all the swimming glory that came to Team USA, the gymnasts from the U.S. were under the limelight. Though superstar Simone Biles wasn't available to compete in the finals of her strongest categories, the other members of the U.S. team made it a great outing in Tokyo.

Among the medal winners was MyKayla Skinner, who grabbed the silver medal in the vault with a score of 14.916.

Meanwhile, individual all-around champion Suni Lee took the bronze on the uneven bars. Though Skinner returned as a replacement for Biles in the vault final, she was unsuccessful in getting the gold. Brazil's Rebeca Andrade won gold on the vault. This was Brazil's first-ever Olympic gold in women's gymnastics.

Lee, on the other hand, climbed onto the winners' podium for the third time.

However, the win was due to a bronze performance on the uneven bars. Belgium's Nina Derwael won gold on the uneven bars.

Raven Saunders' unique protest

A unique protest came alive on the podium after the shot put winners were announced. Team USA's silver medalist Raven Saunders stood on the podium alongside gold medalist Lijiao Gong and bronze medalist Valerie Adams and raised her arms over her head in an "X" shape. This, according to a Yahoo! Sports report, was a representation of "the intersection of where all people who are oppressed meet."

The report added that Saunders, who is black, queer, and battles depression and is open about all three, proclaimed that she wants to help people across the world "who don't have a platform to speak up for themselves." This protest could invite action from the IOC as it has a stance that athletes should not protest on the medal stand.
