But one member of the Final Five was missing.

The accolades keep rolling in for Simone Biles and her USA Gymnastics team.

More than a month after their Olympic success in the Rio Games, the gymnastics squad headlined a group of Team USA athletes who had a chance to meet President Obama and Michelle Obama at the White House on Thursday.

As part of their appearance, The Final Five also took over the White House's official Instagram account.

The Final Five squad warmed up to meet the Commander-in-Chief as if they were getting ready for an Olympic event.

Laurie Hernandez, who's currently on Dancing With the Stars, even used part of the White House to get in some moves.

On behalf of all Team USA athletes, Biles presented President Obama with a surfboard as a gift.

From there, they even got some quality time with the president and FLOTUS.

And check out this moment between the FLOTUS and all 4-foot-9 of Biles.

While Biles, Hernandez, Aly Raisman and Madison Kocian were present, Gabrielle Douglas missed the trip to the White House due to wisdom teeth removal.
