Four of the “Final Five” Olympic gymnasts represented at the White House on Thursday (Sept. 29).
Laurie Hernandez, Aly Raisman, Simone Biles and Madison Kocian joined the 2016 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic teams being honored by President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their success in the Rio Olympic Games.
