At the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro Aly Raisman won a gold medal in the team event and silver medals in the individual all-around and floor exercise. Except on the Olympic Games, she also participated in two World Championships in 2011 and 2015. American teams won both times.

Aly Raisman Family and Partner
If you look at Aly Raisman’s family you can see how come she is what she is and how she became one of the most recognized athletes in the USA. Although Aly Raisman’s father Rick Raisman is not an athlete, her mother Lynn Reisman is a former high School gymnast. She has three younger brothers and sisters: Brett, Chloe, and Madison.
If someone wants to be the best in something, his entire life has to schedule according to his obligations and responsibilities for whatever he/she wants to be the best in. That is why you have to start training from your early childhood. That is the case with Aly Raisman. She began training when she was only two years old. The main reasons for that are probably closely tied to the VHS tapes she watched during her childhood. She was watching the performances of the “Magnificent Seven”, the team which brought gold to the United States in 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America.
Truth to be told, her parents didn’t know that their “little daughter” is going to be one of the best gymnasts of the United States of America have ever had. Lynn said for “Romper” that gymnastics were only something she chose to do with a toddler. Her mother Lynn Raisman understands every move Aly Raisman makes during her competitions. You can clearly see that from the hidden cameras because TV made their reactions go viral.
Aly Raisman parents are clearly very frightened for her daughter, not because they think that she will fail, but because one wrong move could mean a broken ankle or knee or something even more dangerous. Any kind of injury could mean the end of their daughter’s career and tons of broken dreams.
“I get nervous because I know what goes into it and how many hours she’s prepared and how hard she is on herself, and I want her to be happy and go out there and do the best performance she can do. So when it’s over, she is happy no matter the results, so I do get nervous. But whatever she was doing I want her to have the best outcome”

Aly Raisman partner is Colton Underwood born on January 26, 1992, in Indianapolis, Indiana, United States of America. He is an American Football player, former tight end for San Diego Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles, and Oakland Raiders. He is currently an undrafted free agent.
Before she started dating Colton Underwood she had been dating Jamie McGill from 2009 to 2012. That was way back when she was at Needham High School. He played lacrosse for their school.
Education and Career
Aly Raisman graduated from Needham High School in 2012. Interesting thing is that she completed her senior year over the internet because she was training for the Olympics at that time. After the graduation, she first meant to compete for the University of Florida but instead chose to be a professional gymnast and to attend Babson College. She also took gymnastic classes From Exxcel Gymnastics and Climbing and Brestyan’s American Gymnastics Club.
Because of gymnastics, Aly Raisman hasn’t spent a day in the classroom since her early High School days. That practically means that she committed her entire to sports.
After she brought gold medals from the Olympics, she gained a serious amount of popularity in the United States. In 2013 she competed in Dancing With The Stars Season 16. She won fourth place with her partner.
Since she is now 23 years old and the rest of the Olympic and State teams are teenagers, she got a nickname Grandma. However, her condition is in top form and any woman can just envy her on her body. And although she had some problems with her self-esteem because of a size of her arms (too muscular), she made it to the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2017 as one of the most beautiful women in sport.
