Aly Raisman is the two-time team captain of the gold medal winning U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Teams in 2012 and 2016. The most decorated U.S. gymnast at the 2012 Games and first American gymnast to win gold in the floor exercise, she stole the hearts of millions during her silver medal performance in the All-Around competition at the 2016 Games. Raisman is the second most decorated American gymnast of all-time with six total Olympic medals and one of two U.S. gymnasts to make back-to-back Olympic teams in more than 15 years.
A leader on and off the floor, Raisman uses her platform to promote positive body image and encourage everyone to be comfortable and confident in their own skin. In her New York Times best-selling memoir, – Fierce – she shares the highs and lows of her journey, including her survival of sexual abuse. Raisman continues to share her story to help advocate for sexual abuse survivors and push for systematic changes within the sport of gymnastics.
