While Carey didn't do a triple-double layout, which is three twists and two flips while keeping her body straight, like many fans wanted, she still pulled a flawless double-double to lock up the gold.

Before her rise to gold, there were also falls.

Just one day before she won gold, Carey was unable to cleanly land either of her vaults in the women's gymnastics event final. She posted 11.933 and 12.900 to close out the competition in eighth place but her teammate Mykayla Skinner landed the silver.

Carey was initially pushed out of the all-around finals, in which gymnasts compete in all four events: uneven bars, vault, balance beam and the floor exercise, but she returned to replace Simone Biles who decided she could no longer compete.

When the competition arrived, she started strong on the vault with a score of 15.200.

After falling twice during warm-ups, Carey scored a 13.500 on the uneven bars in the all-around final, getting huge air on her dismount.

Carey then came off the balance beam in the all-around final, ending her chances of winning a medal. Though she had a strong recovery and scored an 11.533.

Carey went on to close out the individual all-around final on floor, one of her specialties, earning a 13.966 for a high-flying routine. 

Before she got to the floor exercise final, Carey had to qualify and she advanced with the third best score in the field
