The United States has an opportunity to be the first country to repeat as gold medalist in the women's individual vault since Romania 25 years ago.

The country tied for first in 1992 and later won it outright in 1996. Jade Carey looks to be the favorite to become the second straight U.S. gymnast to win the event as she qualified second. Simone Biles, who won gold in Rio and qualified .017 points ahead of Carey, will skip the finals for both the vault and uneven bars.

Biles' twisties emerged on the vault during the team all-around final, causing the four-time gold medalist to withdraw from competition. If she doesn't compete Sunday, MyKayla Skinner, who qualified fourth, will be Biles' replacement.

Tokyo Olympics cost $15.4 billion. What else could that buy? .
TOKYO (AP) — The official price tag for the Tokyo Olympics in $15.4 billion, which a University of Oxford study says is the most expensive on record. What else could those billions buy? The ballpark figure for building a 300-bed hospital in Japan in $55 million. So you could put up almost 300 of these. The average elementary school in Japan costs about $13 million. For that price, you get 1,200 schools. A quick search finds a Boeing 747 is priced at roughly $400 million. Voila: 38 jumbo jets for the cost of the Tokyo Olympics. The point is, Olympic Games are costly and may bump aside other priorities.
