The US women's gymnastics team — aka the Final Five — finally got some time to hang out and enjoy Rio after all their hard work paid off earlier this week at the Olympics!
Simone Biles, who, no big deal, won four gold medals and is still just 19 years old, posted pics and videos to Snapchat like the one (above) showing off some skin, some sand, and some fun with teammates Aly Raisman and Madison Kocian on a Brazilian shoreline!
Can we talk about those abs?! OMG! Fitness goals times 1,000!!!
Biles also Snapped a pic of her at a pool later, hanging out with another teammate, Laurie Hernandez (below)!!!
Apparently, the ABC series wants Simone Biles to be a contestant on their wildly popular competition show, and considering the sports star's impressive showing at the Rio Games earned her FIVE medals, we don't blame them.
But is the pint-sized powerhouse willing to join the star-studded cast?!
The 19-year-old revealed to E! News:

Well, we may have already found our answer… because the 19-year-old athlete is just one of the rumored contestants on the next season of Dancing with the Stars!
According to sources, Simone will be following in the footsteps of past gold medalists Shawn Johnson and Aly Raisman this September on the ABC reality show.
But she's not alone — we're also hearing that The Bachelorette's JoJo Fletcher and Jake T. Austin from Wizards of Waverly Place and The Fosters will be competing on Season 23!
While Simone, JoJo, and Jake's casting is just speculation right now… we usually get an Olympian, a Bachelor Nation star, and a former Disney actor each season, so we have a feeling we'll be seeing all three of them when Dancing with the Stars premieres Monday, September 12 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC!
Who do U want to see join DWTS this season??
Simone Biles is living out ALL her wildest dreams!
On Tuesday, the actor landed in Rio de Janeiro to join the gymnast on TODAY, and congratulate her on her impressive performance during the Games!
But, the sports star got so much more than just some kind words from the Hollywood hottie!
The acclaimed athlete took to Twitter to reveal the 28-year-old landed a sweet smooch on her cheek on the talk show's set (above)!
She captioned the precious pic:
No one is having a better Olympics than Simone Biles!
On Thursday, the pint-sized gymnast won her SECOND gold medal for Women's Individual All-Around. She already won the top prize for Team All-Around with the rest of the 2016 USA Olympic team.
While the 19-year-old is having a blast in Rio, life wasn't always so peachy keen.
When the Ohio-native was two, she was put in foster care because her mom — Shannon Biles — struggled with drug abuse. The athlete and her younger sister Adria were eventually adopted by their grandparents.
In an interview that aired on NBC, Simone's biological grandfather — Ron — criticizes Shannon for her "many problems."
Earlier this week, Shannon spoke out and is tired of being painted as an addict when she has been sober since 2007. She said:
