Is there anything better than Olympic gymnastics?

No, the answer is no.

The leotards, the muscles, the flips and handsprings and hang time. And let us not forget the hair clips. I can't hardly wait to see what Europe has to bring in the hair clip department, Romania don't let me down!

The U.S. Olympic gymnastics team is set after this last weekend's trials and I feel pretty giddy with the outcome. I mean just LOOK at them...they could each probably rip your head right off with one graceful twist of their rock hard quads.

Seriously this picture gives me major chills because I love the Olympics. My first baby was born the 2nd week of August and we watched the 2008 Olympic swim races and Michael Phelps clean house from our hospital room. It's one of my favorite memories!

Meet the team:

Gabby Douglas - I mean. Does she even need an intro? Defending Olympic champ and first African-American woman to win an all-around gold in the London 2015 games.

Aly Raisman - she's another Team USA veteran and the oldest on the team at the wise old age of 22. Her London floor routine sealed gold for the team and she's a powerful tumbling machine. She's also likely to be named team captain, go Aly!

Laurie Hernandez - watch THIS, that's all you need to see.

Madison Kocian - current reigning world champ on the bars which is great because apparently that's been a weak spot for Team USA.

Simone Biles - 3x world champ, 4x national champ. Word on the street is that she's likely the greatest US gymnast of all-time so there's that. No pressure, Simone!

There you have it! Your gymnastics dream team, the powerhouse squad of the 2016 Rio Olympics. Find even more details at the Huffington Post. I can't freaking wait!
