    Laurie Hernandez celebrates her gymnastics all-around team gold medal in Rio.

    How does an Olympic gymnast celebrate her first gold? If you're New Jersey's Laurie Hernandez, you go to Wawa, of course.

    That's at least how Hernandez's brother Marcus plans to celebrate with her once she arrives back in Old Bridge, New Jersey.

    "As soon as you land we're going straight to Wawa," he posted on Instagram.

    The selfie I get from my sis right after she competed 🙌🏽 even though I haven't even watched it yet on NBC 😑. But anyways I am so proud of who you are and what you've accomplished. We were talking about this being a possibility a decade ago and to see it actually happen is too much for me to handle. It's blowing my mind how the same little girl I used to see doing flips on my bed at age 6 now has a gold medal. I have seen you deal with so much adversity with the sport over the last several years and to finally see your hard work culminate makes it all worth it. You're the toughest little 16 year old I've ever met and I'm not saying that just cause I'm a proud bro. Remember to give God his glory always! Love you sis and can't wait to see you kill it Monday as well. As soon as you land we're going straight to Wawa

    No word yet from the "Final Five" member herself on what she will get once she's back at Wawa.

    Another question is which of the three Wawas in the area the Hernandez siblings will hit up once she's back stateside.

    Wawa spokeswoman Lori Bruce said the company is just proud to be part of an Olympic champ's life.

    "On behalf of the entire Wawa team, we want to extend a huge congratulations to Laurie on this incredible achievement," said Bruce. "We’re so honored and humbled to be a part of this hometown hero's life!"
