SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – In what might be the coolest photo of the day, Utah and Olympic gymnasts MyKayla Skinner and Grace McCallum “flashed the U” all the way from Tokyo, Japan.

The official Utah Gymnastics account posted the photo with the caption, “Daily reminder to flash the U (depicted with an emoji)!”

Flashing The U is a common gesture from both alumni and fans of the University of Utah.

The first Olympic gymnastics event will be on Sunday, July 25. Follow KSL Sports for full coverage on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
