The Gold Squad

USA women's artistic gymnastics Olympics team, from left: Aly Raisman, 22, Simone Biles, 19, Gabby Douglas, 20, Madison Kocian, 19, Laurie Hernandez, 16. I'm rooting hard for these athletes. Gymnastics is hard. They say the only sport more dangerous is football. But Team USA is talented. They're likely to bring home gold. Plus, I just like the picture. The camaraderie. The fun.


  1. I don't watch the Olympics (not a TV fan) but I will be looking for the results of this team. When my daughter was growing up, she watched a lot of Olympic competition and I did at that time, too. Gymnastics and skating were my favourites. There are a lot of similarities, I guess.

  2. That is a great picture! One of my nieces is a gymnast in college, and she seems to have injuries all the time. It's hard on the body.

  3. 16 is so young to be at the Olympics. Interesting to see where she is in 4 years.
