Aly Raisman has been a gymnast all her life. Although the 28-year American artistic gymnast, who began gymnastics at the tender age of 2 years, had stopped competing in 2016, she announced her retirement in 2020 after officially competing in gymnastics competitions for about ten years.
The news was not shocking to most people, as it came shortly after her revelation as one of the victims allegedly sexually abused by former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar. Since then, the gymnast has focused on activism for sexual abuse survivors.
She also became a “role model” for Aerie, designing and creating their collections, with a portion of the sales going towards preventing child sexual abuse.
