The Question: Team USA’s 2012 women’s gymnastics team was known as what?

Friendly Five
Feisty Five
Fearsome Five
Fierce Five

The 2012 U.S. women’s gymnastics team — composed of Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieber, McKayla Maroney, and Kyla Ross — were originally dubbed the “Fab Five.” However, that nickname had already been used by a famous Michigan college basketball quintet, and one of its members, Jalen Rose, took issue with it being recycled for another group. Thankfully, Maroney came up with the “Fierce Five” moniker just prior to the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony, and the team went on to win gold.

The correct answer is Fierce Five.
