We put Laurie Hernandez to the test, and she aced it

There is no day quite like ESPYS day, and there is no athlete quite like the youngest member of the Final Five. So when our favorite vivacious, Dancing-With-The-Stars-winning, Tori Kelly-loving, gymnast Laurie Hernandez was nominated for Best Breakthrough Athlete, we knew what we had to do: challenge her to the infamous espnW red carpet scavenger hunt.

OK, maybe it's not so infamous since Laurie is the first participant. But after her outing, we are quite certain it won't be the last. Let's just say, she was up for the task.

We put @lauriehernandez_ up to our #ESPYS scavenger hunt challenge. 😏
