The #FinalFive consists of Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Laurie Hernandez and Madison Kocian scored their second consecutive gold medal this past Tuesday (Aug. 9).
But Swift isn’t the only woman in the music industry encouraging the #FinalFive. Girl group Fifth Harmony recently released a music video via Twitter entitled “That’s My Girl” intended to cheer the gymnasts on in Rio.
The minute long clip showcased each member of the girl group posed against a backdrop that was interspersed with live shots of the Olympic team. The Olympics Twitter account then posted the video to it’s page and wrote, “Flipping out over this @FifthHarmony and @USAGym music video.”
“That’s My Girl” combined with the images that flashed across the screen was nothing but pure girl power, and even included the reigning champion Douglas, showcasing shots of her training for both Rio and past competitions.
The Olympics gymnastics team has used the song in the past, and it was taken from the girl group’s most recent album, 7/27. The song has also served as a backdrop for a training video of the entire team.
