There were no modifications at the top of the rankings, compared to the first day.  Simone Biles increased the already huge lead, after scoring another 62+ total. She did give away a bit more on execution on uneven bars and  balance beam .  Aly Raisman improved her overall total by two tenths, thanks to better execution on her Amanar. She finished second with a solid 60.650.

Laurie Hernandez finished third, she also earned 60+ points all around total after four hit routines. As a side note though, her vault and bars seemed a bit less crisp compared to day 1.

Gabby Douglas finished 4th with an identical all around score of 58.900. On Sunday she improved greatly on beam execution (with a 15+ routine) but lost important tenths on bars and floor.

Maddison Kocian kept her fifth place. Coming back from ankle injury earlier this year, she passed an important test of consistency. She also managed to improve her uneven bars performance compared to day 1 with increased difficulty.
