After a full day’s worth of discourse about Team USA’s women’s gymnastics silver medal winning performance at the Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, squad member Grace McCallum shared a message on social media expressing her feelings about the group of four gymnasts.

“OLYMPIC SILVER MEDALISTS,” she began on an Instagram caption of a photo with her and fellow team members Sunisa Lee, Jordan Chiles and Simone Biles. “I’m so unbelievably proud of this team. We stuck together through it all and fought till the very end.”

McCallum, who will compete on the collegiate level at the University of Utah starting this fall, concluded the message by using the moniker that has been given to the four gymnasts.

“I’m truly blessed to have to have such an amazing team, the fighting four,” she wrote, adding a white heart at the end.

Kara Eaker, who was named an Olympic alternate and will join McCallum at Utah as a freshman this fall, shared the same photo as McCallum on Instagram and captioned it, “Congratulations to these amazing ladies! Go Team USA!” and added an American flag.
