Yesterday, our “Final Five” U.S. Olympian Gymnastics team visited President Obama and the First Lady.
The visit was missing missing fellow olympian, Gabby Douglas, because she had recently had her wisdom teeth removed and couldn’t make it.

Here is what the ladies did while the White House…
First off, while at the White house, the ladies took over they White House’s official Insta page and where they were posting pics of their meeting and visit with the POTUS and FLOTUS saying:
whitehouse Hi @Instagram! The #FinalFivehere, taking over the account as @TeamUSA visits the White House today for a ceremony with President Obama. 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
At one point, the ladies were teasing around and stretching saying:
whitehouse It’s a little nervewracking to meet the President of the United States, so we’re getting into the zone the only way we know how. #FinalFive #TeamUSAIn one posting, we see Laurie Hernandez dong a small bit of a floor routine in the State Dining Room:
During one posting, they ladies were in the State Dining Room and we see a vid of Laurie Hernandez doing a mini floor routine on the opened space.
whitehouse 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. #FinalFive#TeamUSA
Our Simone Biles presented the POTUS with a gift that was a surfboard that had the olympic rings, Unites States flag and a lot of signatures on it.

whitehouse What an incredible honor to meet President Obama. Simone presented him with a surfboard—a gift from all the @TeamUSA athletes. #FinalFive #TeamUSA

In the end, the ladies all did a split with Obama, but his attempt was more of a kneeling on one knee then a split.
whitehouse That’s a wrap! We’d like to think we stuck this takeover. And President Obama gave his best shot to a split with us today, too. Thanks so much to the President, First Lady @MichelleObama, and @VP for having us. #FinalFive out!
Here are a few random insta postings by the ladies:
