The women's gymnastics team was more excited about a tweet from Taylor Swift than their gold medals.
The U.S. women's gymnastics team won the gold medal in the Olympic team competition earlier this week. They've gotten a lot of support from the American public, including from celebrities like Zac Efron and even Taylor Swift. Taylor sent out this tweet to congratulate the girls on their victory yesterday.
Sending my biggest congratulations to Simone, Aly, Laurie, Gabby and Madison! YOU DID IT GIRLS!! 🇺🇸 #FinalFive— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) August 10, 2016
They might be more excited about getting a shout out from Taylor than they are about their actual medals. Here's what Simone Biles and Aly Raisman looked like when a coach showed them the tweet.
Aly might also be not-so-subtly trying to join Taylor's squad. Aren't we all, though?
@taylorswift13 I ❤️ your song 22 because I'm 22 hehe... And next time you're in Boston lets go shopping 👌🏻👍🏻🇺🇸😋💁🏻— Alexandra Raisman (@Aly_Raisman) August 10, 2016
