President Barack Obama attempted the splits with the United States’ Olympic gymnastics team at the White House almost becoming one the Final Five.

The US women’s gymnastics team visited the White House this week, and Simone Biles documented their visit Saturday by tweeting an image of the President trying his best to stretch along with the gold medalists.

This is the last group of Olympians the Obamas will host a the White House, as the president noted in his speech to the group.

Among the athletes were Simone Biles, Michael Phelps and Aly Raisman. Gabby Douglas, who underwent surgery to remove her wisdom teeth earlier this week, did not attend.

Obama praised the Olympics team for winning 46 gold medals and for the individual milestones athletes made.

While at the White House, the gymnasts, also known as the “Final Five,” did a social media takeover of the White House’s official Instagram account.
