The Olympics don’t officially start for a few weeks, but this weekend gymnasts competed in the US Olympics Trials, hoping to score a spot on Team USA. It was a mesmerizing few nights of theater (like poor Nastia Liukin’s face plant–awful). But after all the drama, we have five new Olympians (and three alternates) who are headed to London.
While we love watching the superhuman feats they perform–and because it’s our job to notice such things–we also love watching what they wear, namely in their hair and on their faces. When we chatted with ex-Olympian Alicia Sacramone (who sadly didn’t make the Olympic team this year), we learned a few secrets about gymnasts and their beauty proclivities. A few things we learned: Scrunchies are still very a much a thing and one’s eye makeup should always match your leotard. With this new knowledge in mind, we present to you the five ladies of Team USA, who range in age from 15-18.
