What do you do when you’ve already won multiple gold medals, broken world records, and met (and kissed) Zac Efron? You celebrate, of course! Most of the US women’s Olympics gymnastics team headed down to the beach in Rio de Janeiro one last time on August 20, before the Olympics closing ceremony, to have some fun in the sand and the surf.
If anybody deserves the chance to relax on the beach, it’s the hardworking young women of the Fab 5! Simone Biles, 19, Aly Raisman, 22, and Madison Kocian, 19, left their nine gold medals at home and hit up Barra da Tijuca beach, where they were seen splashing in the water and taking tons of pics together; they may be Olympians, but they’re still normal young women! Despite the fact that they’ve finished their events and put the bars, rings and mats behind them, they couldn’t help but do some tricks in the sand.
Simone posted an adorable pic on Instagram of the three girls posing together in bikinis, and their six packs are insane. Their intense strength and endurance needed for their sport is indescribable, and the hard work shows in their ripped bodies!
Teammates Gabby Douglas, 20, and Laurie Hernandez, 16, didn’t join them on the beach, but they still got in some R&R time, too, thankfully. Before hitting the beach, Simone posted a photo of herself lounging poolside with Laurie, and they looked like they were having a blast! Gabby went golfing with friends, and the girls looked fierce hanging off the back of their golf cart.
