It was so awesome seeing TEAM USA win the first all-around gold medal last night!  The last time this happened was at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.

The U.S. women’s gymnastics team consists of Aly Raisman, 18, Jordyn Wieber, 17, Gabby Douglas, 16, Kyla Ross, 15, and McKayla Maroney, 16 … also known as the “Fab Five”!

The gymnasts did some tweeting last night after they won and so did some celebs.  Check it out, courtesy of yahoo.com:

“Now that we are Olympic champions, can we please meet Justin Bieber?” Wieber tweeted, to which the singer replied: “You support me, I support you. Congrats. And Ryan Seacrest told me about you, too. Dream big.”

Bieber then congratulated the five gymnasts, adding: “Beliebers win gold.”

Gaga shared in the quintet’s joy via Twitter as well. “Woohoo! Gold for the ladies!” the pop star wrote. “Just want to squeeze them! So much talent and beauty. Did you seem all holding hands? There’s no ‘I’ in team.”

Maroney then thanked the New York native for watching. “This team loves you and your music,” she wrote. “I also heard you were a gymnast?”

Other celebrities who congratulated the team via Twitter include TV host Oprah Winfrey, 58, Dancing With the Stars pro Derek Hough, 27, That’s My Boy actress Ciara, 26, vocalist Josh Groban, 31, singer/songwriter Michelle Branch, 29, and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump, 50.

So, do you think Justin will make room in his schedule to meet the “Fab Five”?!?!
