Although star gymnast Simone Biles withdrew from the women’s team gymnastics final on July 27, her teammates are still set to compete at the remaining events. The team scored a silver medal at the team final. Russia won the gold medal, and Britain took home bronze.

NBCOlympics tweeted out about the team’s silver medal win:

“I think tonight, they get a gold medal from me in fighting because they never gave up and they showed the world what they’re capable of,” Biles said, according to Los Angeles Times.

The rest of the team is also proud of their success and looks forward to the remaining events.

“We were all so stressed,” said U.S. Women’s gymnast Sundi Lee said of the moment Biles withdrew. “We honestly didn’t know what to do in that moment. Like, she’s freaking Simone Biles. She carries the team, basically. When we had to step up to the plate and do what we had to do, it was very hard and stressful. But I’m very proud of us, because we did it.”

Congratulations to the whole team, and best of luck in the rest of the games!
