The 'Final Five' Gymnastics Team Meets President Obama, Takes Over White House Instagram
By Alex Ungerman
There's a lot of gold in the White House right now!
Four members of the "Final Five" U.S. Women's Gymnastics team -- Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Laurie Hernandez, and Madison Kocian, who all won big at the Rio Olympics this past summer -- paid a visit to Washington, D.C., on Thursday, where they attended a ceremony with President Barack Obama, and took over the White House Instagram account to keep us updated on their presidential routine.
"Hi @Instagram! The #FinalFive here, taking over the account as @TeamUSA visits the White House today for a ceremony with President Obama," they wrote. "We were so honored to represent the United States in #Rio2016 and we couldn't be more excited to be here! Stay tuned as we show you what’s up at the White House. @usagym #TeamUSA."
The team then followed up that post with a video of Hernandez showing off her Olympic skills, writing, "The White House East Wing is where many of the big events take place in the White House. @LaurieHernandez_ decided to take advantage of the dance floor in the State Dining Room.."
Meanwhile, Biles managed to snag a sweet picture with POTUS, as well as first lady Michelle Obama, which was shared with the caption, "What an incredible honor to meet President Obama. Simone presented him with a surfboard—a gift from all the @TeamUSA athletes."
