The gymnasts were among the last Olympic athletes the Obamas hosted at the White House in a year marked by many notable athletic achievements.
The memory of Team USA’s gymnastics team comes as the team marks six years since the key win, offering a moment that will live on for years to come.
It also comes two years ahead of the next Olympic Games where the U.S. hopes to once again bring home gold as the location moves to Paris.
