Aly Raisman cheered on fellow gymnast Laurie Hernandez at the 2016 Rio Olympics, and now she’s supporting her on the Dancing with the Stars ballroom floor!

On Monday evening, the 22-year-old gold medalist sat in the audience for week two’s TV night where she complimented her Final Five teammate’s dancing skills.

After Hernandez and pro dancer Val Chmerkovskiy were awarded a 32 out of 40 for their jive, Raisman said, “I mean, I think she should have gotten all 10s. I thought it was the best of the night. She’s incredible.”

Raisman continued with her praises of Hernandez’s dancing skills, saying, “She’s the best dancer. Way better than any of the other gymnasts that have been on the show, so we love cheering her on and we’re so proud of her.”

Numerous Olympians have participated on the dancing competition reality series, including gymnasts Shawn Johnson (season 8) – won the coveted Mirror Ball trophy – and Raisman (season 16).

After placing fourth on season 16 with pro partner Mark Ballas, Raisman told PEOPLE of the experience, “When I really stop and think about how lucky I am to be on the show, and what an amazing opportunity this was, and how much fun I had, it’s okay.”

Raisman added, “We have absolutely no regrets. We worked so hard and we had so much fun, so that’s what counts.”

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
