'Final Five' US Women's Gymnastics Team Ready to 'Kick Some Butt' in Team Final
By Jennifer Drysdale
The Olympic women's gymnastics team all-around final is officially upon us, and while we couldn't be more excited, neither can the "Final Five!"
After an outstanding performance in the sport's qualification round, leading all countries with a score of 185.238 (almost 10 points higher than the second best team, China), it's easy to see why Team USA is "ready to kick some butt!"
And of course Douglas, the all-around champ at the 2012 London games, couldn't help but reflect on Olympics past. "These girls showed us how to get it done in #Atlanta1996 and we hope to follow in their footsteps in #Rio2016. Thank you #Magnificent7 for inspiring us and being great examples!! You will always be our role models!" she wrote. "Let's do this ladies!"
"#GoTeamUSA," Biles added. "Behind all of our hard work and dedication, are our coaches who have never given up on us and put in work for us to be where we are. So thankful."
