Laurie Hernandez, an Olympic Champ Worthy of a Celebration at Wawa: Brother

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.

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!"
