Meet The New 'Fierce Five' Gymnastics Team Heading To Rio

July 19, 2016 by Keren Leshem

It’s crazy to believe that four years have passed since the last summer Olympics, but here we are! At the beginning of August, we’re heading to Rio, and we can’t wait to see one sport in particular: gymnastics. We all remember the “Fierce Five” women who won medals for us back in London, but this time around, the team has some fresh faces. We wanted to take some time to get to know these lovely ladies before the games begin. So here we go, now introducing…

Simone Biles. This 19-year-old from Columbus, Ohio will be heading to Rio as the first African-American woman to be an all-around champion AND the first woman to win three consecutive world all-around titles – woah. Make sure to check her out here and in Rio!

Gabby Douglas. You will definitely recognize this familiar face from the 2012 games. Gabby, at only 20 years old, won a gold medal in London in the individual all-around (she was the first African-American woman to win that event) and in the all-around team competition. Dubbed the “flying squirrel,” we’re sure that Gabby will continue to make headlines this summer in Rio.

Madison Kocian. This 19-year-old gymnast from Dallas, Texas is sure to do big things in Rio. She might be new to the Olympics, but this 2015 World Champion on the uneven bars can do amazing things! Look out for her in August.

Laurie Hernandez. The youngest of the group, Laurie is only 16 years old – what?! This newbie to the Olympic stage was a fan of the ‘Fierce Five’ back in 2012 – and now she gets to be in it! Keep an eye out for her in Rio.

@ P&G's come at me🔥

Aly Raisman. Last but certainly not least, this 22-year-old gymnast is read for another Olympics! As the captain of the 2o12 team, Aly won gold medals in the team and floor competitions, as well as a bronze medal in the balance beam. After starring on Dancing With The Stars for season 16, Aly is ready to take on the Olympic stage again! We’ll be looking out for her (and her parents!).

OLYMPIC TRIALS HERE WE COME!!! Rooming with @madison_kocian ❤️💋
