Aly Raisman is a 22-year-old U.S. Olympic artistic gymnast from Needham, Massachusetts. Aly is one of the best gymnasts in the world, as she’s racked up a ton of medals in international competition. She’s won four medals at World Championships, bringing home a team silver in 2010, a bronze in the floor exercise in 2011, a team gold in 2011, and a team gold in 2015.
At the 2012 Olympics, Aly was the U.S. team captain, and she ended up being the most decorated American gymnast at the Games. She won a team gold medal, a gold medal in the floor exercise, and a bronze medal in the balance beam. It will be an extremely tough act to follow in 2016, but thankfully, the captain is off to a great start.
On Tuesday, August 9, Aly and her USA teammates won gold for the second straight Olympics in the team competition. Aly still has a ton of events left in Rio, as she will compete in the individual all-around on Thursday, August 11, the uneven bars and the vault on Sunday, August 14, the beam on Monday, August 15, and the floor exercise on Tuesday, August 16.
