You probably already know that the "Final Five" won team gold in Rio, and you've probably already fallen in love with Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez, and the rest of the women's gymnastics team. But just in case you missed NBC's coverage of the Olympic gymnastics events over the last week, these clips will cover the most important and awe-inspiring moments from their domination.

17. and Simone (who made an uncharacteristic fumble) cinched balance beam bronze even without a perfect routine.

18. And in the final event-floor exercise-Simone took home her fourth gold.

19. And Aly took home her second silver medal.

20. Meaning the "Final Five" team left Rio with four gold medals, six silver medals, and two bronze medals-the highest medal count in U.S. Gymnastics history.
