The ladies who represented Team USA in gymnastics just returned back to the States after a successful run in Rio, and sat down with E! News' Maria Menounos to dish all the details on their time away in Brazil—from their surprise meet and greet with Zac Efron to dealing with media coverage of individual gymnasts.
While it's known that the Olympics are arguably the biggest sports competition we have, sometimes we forget that it's not just one country against another, but teammates competing against each other, too. And when you have such a talented group like the Final Five, the competition gets pretty stiff.
Regardless of that, however, the girls tell E! News that there was never any bad blood between these tumbling teammates. "We don't like it," Aly Raisman told us of people trying to pit them against each other. Simone Biles added, "We're a team so we didn't pay attention to it. They did that themselves but we were well put together as a team and I think they realized that."
As for certain gymnasts getting more media attention than others, Biles states that she felt "we all got equal attention," noting, "We all broke so many records while we were there, so the attention was disbursed equally."
Raisman adds, "We're representing USA as best as we can. So if one of us gets a gold, we're happy, because it's one more for Team USA. We all support each other, we all have fun, I know that sounds cheesy. People don't always believe it, but we know that we're happy, we know that we love each other so that's all that matters."
You know who else they love? Zac Efron! The ladies got a surprise visit from the hunky Hollywood star while in Rio, which was an extra treat for Biles, who is known to have the biggest crush on the actor. But the ladies have a few more names on their radar.
