Vulture explains that gymnast, Lauren “Laurie” Hernandez, achieved two honors last night in Rio: She became a gold medalist and she also became the national team’s sweetheart. While Michael Phelps’ #PhelpsFace was everything we love about our boy from Baltimore, Hernandez brought something different to the table.
The 16-year-old was the most animated Olympian on the podium and watching her gave us life! According to E! News her personality has made us all fall in love with her. Make sure you’re following all of her social media accounts. Laurie Hernandez’s Snapchat username is Laurie7:
