U.S. women win team gold at Gymnastics Worlds

I know most of us only watch gymnastics during the Olympics, but you have to hand it to the U.S.'s four "young guns," competing in their first senior world championships.

AP reports:

Just imagine if the Americans were at full strength.

Unfazed by the loss of Beijing Olympic captain Alicia Sacramone, the Americans won their third title at the world gymnastics championships Tuesday night with a commanding performance that lets everyone know they're the team to beat next summer in London.
