Simone Biles, USA Gymnasts Protect Gold Medals During Fire Alarm In Rio

The USA women’s gymnastics team worked incredibly hard to earn gold Tuesday at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. It’s understandable the squad will do anything to protect their medals.

The group known as “The Final Five” — Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez, Madison Kocian, Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas — were among those forced to deal with a fire alarm Wednesday in Rio, and they couldn’t help but hysterically laugh at the situation. The young ladies made sure they grabbed their most prized possessions — their gold medals and gym bags — before exiting the building, though.

They also shared the funny experience on social media for everyone back home to enjoy.

Fortunately, everyone is OK. So, too, are the medals.
