“Colbert Report” host Stephen Colbert knows probably better than anyone that in order to succeed you have to work with the best. That’s why on his show Wednesday night he said goodbye to his latest crop of interns, and brought on a new, shall we say, more qualified set: the gold medal-winning women’s gymnastic team. That’s right: Gabby, McKayla, Kyla, Aly and Jordyn — along with Aly’s very excitable mom — all made an appearance. And they were tasked with the very important job of making sure Stephen had his pen. You know how Stephen can get about his pens. [Comedy Central]
We are a littttttle obsessed with Team USA’s women’s gymnastics team so we kept one eye on the live-stream of the team finals competition today (which airs tonight on NBC). Click through to see Gabby, McKayla, Jordyn, Kyla, and Aly competing — but be warned: we reveal whether they won any medals at the end!
These are the five female athletes picked to compete on behalf of Team USA in gymnastics at this summer’s London Olympics. Having spent the week watching these young ladies practice and compete at Olympic trials in San Jose, I am elated that they made the cut. Find out a little more about Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney, Jordyn Wieber, and Kyla Ross in the slideshow above!
