A pair of Broncos finished in the Top 50 in gymnastics at the Summer Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro.

Courtney McGregor finished the day with a 53.165 in the all-around to secure 41st place in women’s artistic gymnastics.  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.

Neither Bronco managed the top-24 finish in the all-around, nor did they manage 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.
