America’s gymnastic sweethearts, the Final Five, took over the White House this week.
Gold medalists Aly Raisman, Laurie Hernandez, Simone Biles and Madison Kocian were in DC to join fellow Olympians and Paralympians for a presidential ceremony to honor their victories in Rio de Janeiro this summer. The 5th member of the Final Five, Gabby Douglas, was unable to attend because she was recovering from having her wisdom teeth removed.
The team had a blast meeting the president and first lady, stretching and playing with the presidential pups, and taking over the White House instagram.
At the actual ceremony, the team presented the Obamas with a surfboard signed by members of Team USA.
