Hernandez will be one of the youngest athletes that will be competing in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. She'll also become the second U.S.-born Latina to ever compete in the U.S. women’s gymnastics Olympic team since Tracee Talavera at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.
Despite Hernandez' incredible achievements this weekend, this young woman isn't an overnight success. She's been inching her way toward the Olympics for several years now.
Here's the stellar performance that we can't stop watching.
Because of this amazing routine, Laurie earned her spot alongside her U.S.A. gymnastics team: Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, and Madison Kocian.
