GLAMSquad Going to Rio
These are the five girls competing at the Rio Olympics for the U.S. gymnastics team and I love them all dearly
- •(G)abby DouglasOk so maybe she fell off the beam twice in trials, but she also won all-around gold at the 2012 London games along with getting gold at this year's American Cup. She was the first ever black woman to win all around at the Olympics
- •(L)aurie HernandezShe's only 16 and just made her debut in senior gymnastics this year, but got Gold on the balance beam, silver on vault, and bronze all around at the Jesolo trophy competition and got bronze on the uneven bars, balance beam, floor routine and overall at US Nationals.
- •(A)ly RaismanI love all of them but I love Aly the most. Captain of the 2012 Fierce Five team where she got gold on floor and bronze on beam. She also got silver all around, on beam, and floor at this year's US Nationals.
- •(M)adison KocianGod of the uneven bars. She's won gold on the bars at the 2013 American Classic, the 2014 Jesolo Trophy, the 2015 US Secret Classic, 2015 P&G, and 2015 World Championship, as well as getting the highest score on bars at these Olympic trials for Rio. In every competition since 2013 where she hasn't gotten gold on the uneven bars, she's gotten silver.
- •(S)imone BilesAccording to just about everyone, she's the greatest gymnast of all time. At 19, she was too young to compete at the 2012 Olympics, but since making her senior debut in 2013 she's won all around gold at every single competition she's gone to. In 3 World Championships she's earned 10 gold medals, 2 silver and 2 bronze, making her the most decorated in the competition's history. In 4 US Nationals she's earned 11 gold and 6 silver.
- •They're basically unstoppable
