The Sunday marked the end of the U.S. Gymnastic team’s trial process, with Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez and Madison Kocian being named to the team.

After finally receiving the payoff for all of their hard work, a few of the newly minted Olympians decided to cut loose with a locker room dance party that showed just how excited they are to represent their country in Brazil next month.

In addition to the five members of the team, Ashton Locklear, MyKayla Skinner and Ragan Smith will serve as alternates for the Olympics, with the women’s gymnastics program’s opening on Day 2 of the games with team qualifications.
