Laurie Hernandez Says Winning 'DWTS' Was Like Winning at the Olympics

Laurie Hernandez thinks winning Dancing With The Stars was just as amazing as winning gold at the Olympics!

During an appearance on Good Morning America, the 16-year-old gymnast compared the two experiences.

“It felt amazing. I had that same joy as I had at the Olympics. It was such an accomplishing moment. It was exciting. I’m so grateful,” Laurie explained.

Her partner Val Chmerkovskiy added, “To see that in a young person is very inspiring for anybody. She’s really special, and I wanted to do a good job for her, and I hope I did.”

Also pictured: Laurie and Val heading out of the GMA studio on Wednesday morning (November 23) in New York City.
