Aly Raisman Update

The Olympic gold medalist’s wild ride continues

Print Email

Yes, the Olympics are over and oxpecking journalists everywhere are retreating to less unifying national topics. But for our Olympic hero Aly Raisman, the marathon continues. According to the Boston Herald, here’s what the Massachusetts-native has been up to since winning gold at the 2012 London Olympics:

She scored an endorsement with Poland Springs to add to her partnerships with Ralph Lauren, GK Elite Leotards, Got Milk, Topps and Kellogg’s. She’s been seen hanging out with the New England Patriots and American Idol’s Phil Phillips (whoever that is). She’s been lying out by the pool with her friends and trying to decide whether she’ll go to college next year or train for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

She’ll also be thrown a parade this weekend in her hometown town of Needham, Massachusetts.

And the best part of the update:

While many Olympic athletes, such as fellow teen phenom 2012 Olympic swimming gold medalist Missy Franklin, mark their achievement with a tattoo of the Olympic rings, “I’d rather just have this necklace. It has the Olympic rings on it,” she said of a gold medallion given to her by a friend. “I’m not a tattoo kind of person.”

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

You go, girl!

I thought she was coming to Israel!
