Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman is speaking out about body positivity and it’s so important
Aly Raisman is a straight-up national treasure. A two-time Olympic gymnast, Raisman was a part of the 2012 “Fierce Five” at the London Olympics, and the 2016 “Final Five” in Rio, along with her fellow American gymnasts/superheroines Gabby Douglas, Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez, and Madison Kocian.
