Laurie Hernandez's Brother Marcus Is Insanely Proud of Her After Olympics Win

All of America is insanely proud of Laurie Hernandez and the US Women’s Gymnastics Team for winning the gold medal during the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics this week, but probably none more so than her brother, Marcus.

Marcus, 20, posted a sweet message about his sister on Instagram moments after she, along with Gabby Douglas, Simone Biles, Madison Kocian and Aly Raisman, won the gold medal for the Team All-Around.

“The selfie I get from my sis right after she competed, even though I haven’t even watched it yet on NBC,” he wrote with the pic she sent him. “But anyways I am so proud of who you are and what you’ve accomplished. We were talking about this being a possibility a decade ago and to see it actually happen is too much for me to handle.”

Marcus added, “It’s blowing my mind how the same little girl I used to see doing flips on my bed at age 6 now has a gold medal. I have seen you deal with so much adversity with the sport over the last several years and to finally see your hard work culminate makes it all worth it. You’re the toughest little 16 year old I’ve ever met and I’m not saying that just cause I’m a proud bro. Remember to give God his glory always! Love you sis and can’t wait to see you kill it Monday as well. As soon as you land we’re going straight to Wawa.”
