The Final Five are ready for Tokyo!

After dominating at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Laurie Hernandez and Madison Kocian, all said they are ready to take Tokyo by storm at the 2020 Olympic Games.

“I don’t want to look ahead to Tokyo yet, because we are just coming off of this. But raise your hand if you think you will be in Tokyo coming up,” anchor Hoda Kotb asked the girls.

Biles, 19, responded: “Everyone raise your hands. We’re all going again.”

The gymnasts have cemented themselves as some of the Rio Games’ biggest stars.

The team took home the gold in the all-around competition.

Biles won three individual gold medals and Raisman, 22, Hernandez, 16, and Kocian, 19, all won silver – with Raisman leaving the Games with two.

However, the group recently revealed that the 2020 Games would see a four-person women’s gymnastics team.

“This is the last Olympics where there’s a five-girl team,” Raisman told Today earlier this month. “The next Olympics is only going to be a four-person team.”

So, just how are all five girls planning to be part of the Tokyo 2020 team?

“Simone’s the new Marta,” Hernandez joked, referring to coach Marta Karolyi, who is retiring following the Rio Games.
