Olympics Gymnastics Team —The President, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and the Gold! (Photos)

Team USA & Their Gold

The US Olympics Women’s Gymnastics team did it! They won the gold!  Jordyn Wieber, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Kyla Ross and McKayla Maroney are now proud owners of the very coveted gold medals for their team’s efforts, a feat that the United States hasn’t achieved since 1997.

These teenagers, ages 15 to 18, realized their dreams, the results of blood, sweat and tears and years and years of training. But it’s not over, they are now in the midst of interviews, photo ops, talking to the President and tweeting with such superstars as Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.

Dreams do come true! See what happens now that they’ve waken up!

The Tweets:

The President called the girls and tweeted, “Congratulations! You’ve made us all proud.”

Jordyn is a huge Justin Bieber fan so she was thrilled when he wrote, “@jordyn_wieber u support me i support u. congrats. and @ryanseacrest told me about u too. #DREAMBIG”

Jordyn tweeted, “That amazing moment when @justinbieber follows all of us.” Yes, more than one big dream coming true for her!

Lady Gaga wrote saying, “Woohoo! Gold for the ladies! just want to squeeze them! So much talent and beauty. Did u seem all holding hands? There’s no “I” in team.” McKayla wrote back saying, “Thanks for watching @ladygaga!! <3 This team loves you & your music!! I also heard you were a gymnast?? ;)” Lady Gaga was evidently as happy that McKayla tweeted as McKayla was that Lady Gaga tweeted, writing, “@mckaylamaroney tweeted at me! Why didnt anybody tell me!!! DEAD. You were brilliant give all the girls a kiss for me!” Aly is a fan of the Gaga too saying, “Aly wrote, “Thank you @ladygaga I am so glad you watched us! We listen to your music everyday here in London! You are so awesome!!”

And Pink wrote too saying, “Congrats to the USA women’s gymnastics team on their win. You competed hard!!!!!! Well done” thank you so much!!”
