From the mat in Rio to the stage of Madison Square Garden. MTV confirmed on Thursday that the gold medal-winning U.S. women’s gymnastics team will present an award at the VMAs this Sunday.

The team, consisting of Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, Laurie Hernandez, and Madison Kocian, is fresh off their successful and highly publicized Olympic run, where they won the team gold medal. Fellow Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps will also present at the awards show.

Since they’ve been back, the team has seen Hamilton, appeared on The Tonight Show, and met stars-turned-fans like Usher.

The six Olympians join other confirmed VMA presenters, Alicia Keys, Fifth Harmony, Kim Kardashian West, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Ansel Elgort, Jaden Smith, Tove Lo, Jimmy Fallon, Bebe Rexha, Rita Ora, and Shameik Moore.

The 2016 VMAs will air at 9 p.m. ET this Sunday on MTV.
