The United States women’s gymnastics team definitely didn’t want to spoil the television coverage of NBC when they are shown the champions of the world, but it appears the team couldn't keep quiet any longer Tuesday afternoon. Winning a gold medal in the artistic gymnastics women's team final, the athlete shared two words with her fans that put the win in perspective.
“OLYMPIC CHAMPIONS,” tweeted McKayla Maroney from her official Twitter account. Within second Aly Rasiman tweeted the same message as the entire team let their fans know they had won the gold. Almost immediately the posts went viral as those folks who were at work had a chance to hear the news that Team USArepresented very well during the artistic gymnastics final.
A team effort, the chance to show the world the best gymnastics, this is the first time the United States has won since 1996. A fan favorite event, there is no doubt several Wheaties cereal boxes will be reserved for the five member team.
McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross, Alexandra Raisman, Gabrielle Douglas and Jordyn Wieber all took the podium at the award ceremony to claim the gold medal and it won’t be surprising if we see these five talented ladies show up in America to show off the medal on television too.
