With the 2016 Olympics now over, we're reminiscing about all the action that took place during the past couple of weeks. Lucky for us, Team USA's youngest gymnast, Laurie Hernandez, did us all a favor by sharing a behind-the-scenes look at all the excitement (read: hard work) on her Instagram.
The passionate 16-year-old, who is Puerto Rican American, recently announced in an Instagram post that she's gone pro and "given up my NCAA eligibility," which means that she won't be competing at the college level in the future. Having taken a gold medal in the team finals and a silver on balance beam, we're crossing our fingers this means she'll be representing our nation at the 2020 Games, too! In the meantime, see Rio through Laurie's eyes, and then find out everything you need to know about the superstar athlete affectionately known as "baby Shakira."
