Alexandra "Aly" Raisman

Aly Raisman, captain of the 2012 and 2016 United States Women's Olympic gymnastics teams, won a pair of gold medals and a bronze in London in 2012, and a gold and two silvers at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro games, leading her American women's team to repeat Olympic championships.

Raisman's U.S. women's "Fierce Five" won the 2012 Team Gold medal in 2012, and she won Individual gold medal in Floor Exercises and an Individual bronze on the Balance Beam. Aly and a Russian competitor finished with matching scores for third place in the Individual All-Around event, but Olympics tie-breaking rules gave the Russian the event's bronze medal.  

Four years later, in 2016, Raisman again won a gold medal in the Team event, and silver medals in the Individual All-Around and Floor Exercises.

Raisman was a 2012 gold medalist in Balance Beam and Floor Exercises at the 2012 Visa Championships.  She won a Team gold medal and Individual bronze at the 2011 World Championships.  And, she was a Team gold medalist at the 2010 Pacific Rim Championships, while capturing Individual All-Around, Balance Beam, and Floor Exercises silver medals.
