The Internet was collectively in awe of their super-fit figures, tweeting their approval and admiration.

Not everyone was impressed, however. One twitter troll named Daniel — handle @UWantMyD_aniel — took to social media to body-shame the women, writing, “Y’all find this attractive? lmaaoo.”


The tweet has since been deleted, but not before hundreds of users rushed to the gymnasts’ defence and put Daniel on blast.

Our personal favourite, however, has to be this epic tweet from university student Crystal McDuffy.

The tweet has since gone viral, with more than 50,000 retweets.

“Be it in sports, politics, business and more, women continually seem to be evaluated based upon whether they’re attractive in a man’s eyes,” McDuffy told BuzzFeed News. “Everything women do is not for male consumption or approval.”

In light of the recent media coverage, McDuffy stands by her tweet and says she’s glad it got people talking.

“When I tweet, aside from gaining a few laughs, my ultimate goal is to get people to reflect on why they do and say the things that they do,” McDuffy said. “I think this tweet did a swell job.”

She added: “Also, I would do many, many, many, things to have abs like that.”

Wouldn’t we all!
