Together, He Kexin and Deng Linlin helped China win its first ever Olympic team gold in 2008. In 2009, they swept the bars and beam golds at the World Championships. And in 2012, at their second Olympics, they each won two individual medals - Kexin with a silver on bars, and Linlin with gold on the beam. The two retired in 2013, after years of dominating the uneven bars and balance beam.
