Brianna Rollins, Nia Ali and Kristi Castlin have reason to jump for joy today!
That's because the three American hurdlers respectively took home the gold, silver and bronze medals at the Rio Olympics on Wednesday night in a historic clean sweep of the 100 meter event for America. (It's the first sweep by a country in that event in Olympic history.)
And the ladies, who spoke with TODAY's Matt Lauer and Hoda Kotb on Thursday about the triumphant trio win couldn't be more ecstatic.
"When my name came up, I immediately dropped down because I was like, 'Yes! I did it!'" grinned Castlin.
And that's a great feeling. But when your other teammates turn out to be a hairbreadth behind you, there's even more to shout about.
"Honestly, I'm always in a position where I'm the one waiting to see, 'Did I get third? Or did I get first?'" said Ali. "But this time I knew that when I came across that I did my part. I really wanted us to get the sweep. We prayed for this."
"When women come together, it's like a sisterhood," said Rollins. "It was a great opportunity to come out here and represent America that way."
There was even a surprise addition to the amazing American team: Ali's 15-month-old son Titus, who completely stole the show by running out on the field to embrace his silver medal-winning mom.
Meanwhile, off the field the ladies have been doing some celebrating on social media:
Of course, if there was a medal for sheer sassytude, Castlin would already have taken that home. When she entered the stadium at a jog during the introductions earlier in the evening, she stopped and struck a modelesque pose for the throng.
"This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!" she told Lauer of the moment. "I may never have it again."
We somehow doubt that!
