The girl-power dream team is proving that they’re just like normal teenage girls.

U.S. Olympic gymnasts Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez, Aly Raisman, Madison Kocian and Gabby Douglas sat down with PEOPLE to discuss championship and living in Rio during the 2016 Olympic games.

The group unanimously said “yes” when asked if they were excited to be back in the U.S.

“It feels weird, though,” one said.

They were reminded that women earned 61 of the 121 medals that the U.S. won in Rio and asked where they plan to stash their prizes.

“Do you guys know what you’re going to do with your medals?” one reporter asked.

Each of the ladies appeared to have undisclosed location plans for their medals.

Reporters cut to the chase when they asked about living conditions in Rio.

“So much buzz leading up to the Olympics in Rio, you all stayed together in the Olympic village […] what was the tone? Was it fun? Was it safe? Did you feel good about it?”

“Lots of cute boys […] we laughed a lot,” Aly said.

Lauren Hernandez added, “It was good to be able to interact with all of the different countries and see what sport they play and everything.”

However, Simone Biles mentioned they almost got stepped on because of their small stature.

Madison Kocian agreed,”We’re so small we had like fit in-between people,” she said.

Well, clearly they survived the height issue because they were U.S. champs as the games came to a close.
