Those screams you heard coming from the athletes village Wednesday morning were the US women gymnasts reading their Twitter feeds.
The new Olympic gymnastics champions are huge Justin Bieber fans, and have been begging to meet the pop superstar for months now. Well, not only did the Biebs give the Fierce Five a shoutout, megafan Jordyn Wieber (she once hung a poster of him in her room at training camp) got a special mention.
Here’s one: “CONGRATS to (at)McKaylaMaroney (at)jordynmarie2013 (at)kyla_ross96 (at)Aly_Raisman (at)gabrielledoug on your GOLD MEDAL. (hashtag)BeliebersWinGOLD (hashtag)Proud …”
And here’s another, sent three minutes later: “(at)jordyn_wieber u support me i support u. congrats.”
