WASHINGTON--President Barack Obama phoned the "Fab Five" --the Olympic-gold medal winning U.S. women gymnasts-- on Wednesday to congratulate each one--Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieber, McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross and Gabby Douglas.
According to Press Secretary Jay Carney, here's what Obama said:
To Aly: "Michelle and have watched and decided of all the Olympians you guys amaze us the most."
To Jordan: "I'm so impressed by how you bounced back and led the team. Tell your parents I'm proud of them too. I don't think I could watch if I were them."
To McKayla: "Way to nail that vault. It was unbelievable."
To Kyla: He remarked how she was "really steady."
"I was impressed by how cool you were. I don't know how you do what you do especially the balance beam."
To Gabby: "You just tore it up. I know how hard you worked to get there." And: "Keep at it. Stay cool."
