After struggling to catch her release moves in the warm-up, Carey nailed her routine in competition. She scored a 13.5, which is six tenths lower than her qualification. Carey did not perform all the skills in this routine that she did in qualifications, resulting in a lower difficulty score. As she has done so many times already in Tokyo, Lee came up big when it counted. She sailed through the most difficult version of her bars set and stuck her dismount, getting a high-five from her coach after she saluted the judges. Her score of 15.300 is one tenth higher than her score from qualifications.
