2016 Boise State Olympics Tracker

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil - Courtney McGregor finished the day with a 53.165 in the all-around to secure 41st place in women's artistic gymnastics at the Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to lead the Bronco contingent on Sunday afternoon. Fellow incoming freshman Isabella Amado was close behind with a 52.832 to finish 44th. McGregor and Amado represented their native countries of New Zealand and Panama, respectively.

McGregor competed in the fourth session of the day and started off on her best event, vault. She earned a 14.666 in her first vault and then followed it up with a 14.000 in her second to come away with a 14.333, good for 16th place in the vault standings.

She then moved to the uneven bars in her second rotation and recorded a 12.433. Her third event - the balance beam - produced a 13.000 for another solid routine. McGregor then closed out her day on floor and posted a 13.066, giving her a total of 53.165.

Amado was in the first session of the day and started on floor where she earned a 12.866. She then went to vault and secured a 13.900, her highest score of the day in any individual event.

The Panamanian also hit on her uneven bars routine, pulling in a 12.733. She ended her morning on her strongest event, balance beam. She threw down a 13.333 on the final apparatus, earning 49th place in the event standings. 

Neither Bronco managed the top-24 finish in the all-around nor the top-eight finish in an individual event that would have advanced them to the finals, but the two Broncos both secured top-50 all-around finishes and hit on every routine of the day.
