Final Five, minus Gabby Douglas, present award to Beyonce at VMAs

Make that six Olympians at Sunday’s Video Music Awards.

The U.S. women’s gymnastics team, minus Gabby Douglas who was dealing with a medical issue, presented the award for Best Female Video at the Video Music Awards on Sunday night.

The four—Aly Raisman, Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez and Madison Kocian—each took turns on the microphone, and eventually would announce Beyonce as the winner of the award. When the pop star walked up to the stage, she gave each of them hugs.

Hernandez was particularly excited.

The four weren’t the only Olympians at the show; Michael Phelps introduced Future and Serena Williams brought out Beyonce.

Douglas is out of the hospital and tweeted that she is resting comfortably.
