Coming up Thursday on Starting Point: Soledad O'Brien interviews US women's gymnastics team's 'Fierce Five'

People are calling the US women's gymnastics team America's new "Golden Girls." Though don't call them that to their faces – they want to be known as the "Fierce Five."

The gymnasts are back home after winning gold in women's gymnastics at the London Olympics. It was the first time Team USA took gold in the event since the Magnificent Seven in the 1996 Atlanta Games.

The "Fierce Five" were unstoppable, from their impressive vaults, incredible flips and powerful finish on the floor exercise.

Soledad talks with Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, Kyla Ross and Jordyn Wieber about their amazing wins, and in this preview clip, Soledad asks them what it's like to be role models for the next generation of young gymnasts.

Watch the whole interview on "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien" tomorrow, Thursday Aug. 16th at 7am Eastern on CNN.
