Laurie Hernandez Winked At The Olympic Judges And We All Fell In Love

She really is a human emoji! 😉

Yo #PhelpsFace, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you finish, but Laurie Hernandez made one of the best pre-competition faces of all time. 

No, seriously. She did.

Right before her floor routine at the Rio Olympics, Team U.S.A  sweetheart Laurie Hernandez winked at the judges. That’s right. SHE WINKED AT THE JUDGES.

Behold the evidence:

The gesture was magical and bold and daring. Honestly we need more adjectives to describe why this wink was the best thing ever. Laurie is the youngest athlete on the U.S. women’s gymnastics team, and the spunkiest. 

And we’re not the only ones loving this. Twitter exploded with an outpour of wink-praise. This girl literally stole hearts across America. 

And if you thought the wink was the only magical stolen moment in Laurie’s Olympics journey, think again!

Right before hopping on the balance beam, she can be seen saying “I got this” to herself.

Laurie Hernandez, never change. You are (literally) GOLD. 

Watch her full floor routine (wink and all) here.
