US gymnasts on The Late Show with David Letterman
No rest for the triumphant. Team U.S.A. gymnasts' media tour continues tonight, when they appear on the Colbert report. Last night - they stopped by "The Late Show" following a whirlwind day in the big apple.
Needham gymnast Aly Raisman and her Olympic teammates show off their gold medals on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Raisman explained how the team managed to excel at the vault and other events.
"It looks frightening, is it frightening?" asked Letterman.
"Yeah, it is pretty frightening,” replied Raisman.
"Well why do they make you do that?"
"I don't know."
"We’re daredevils?" offered McKayla Maroney.
"Well, you are daredevils. Well, it kind of looks that way."
"That's why we're the fierce five,” said Raisman.
Mckayla Maroney discussed her infamous facial expression after taking silver in the vault.
"After I did it, the girls keep pointing it out, like, 'you're doing the face again,'" said Maroney.
"Every time she does it, we're like, 'there it is,'" said Raisman.
After Letterman asked Maroney to display the famous face, Raisman let him know that all the girls had been working on it. The Fierce Five showed off their ‘McKayla is not impressed face’ to a round of applause from the audience.
Earlier in the day, the girls flipped a switch at the empire state building, lighting up the tower in red, white, and blue.
They then visited the New York stock exchange and had the chance to ring the closing bell.
It's not known when Raisman will return to Needham.
The town is planning a parade and celebration for her once she does get home.
Raisman and her teammates will then begin a nationwide gymnastics tour on September eighth.
The tour comes to Boston November 10th.
