Miss any of the post-Olympic news on USA’s most decorated gymnast at the London games? Here are some of the top articles, photos, and stories you may have missed:
- Aly Raisman told US Weekly she’d go on a date with Joe Jonas. “I’m excited to get to know him,” she gushed. “I would go on a date with him.” She also wants to go shopping with Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Which star do you think would be a good match for Aly?
- Brestyan’s hosted a huge reception for their golden girl. See the article for lots of pictures and a video.
Well before she arrived, crowds of fans were already lining up to welcome her home and for a chance to get an autograph and picture with the gold-medal winner. When she did arrive, to Queen’s “We are the Champions,” the crowd went wild, swarming the police cruiser that delivered her to the event.
- Aly was featured in a full-page spread for “Got Milk?” in the USA Today.
- Q&A with the Needham Patch on life after gold. She talked about her new sponsorship, newfound celebrity, and future plans.
I’ve only been home for a week and a half, so I’m still trying to wrap my head around everything. I feel like everything’s pretty much normal besides all these little kids waiting here wanting my picture. That’s really special and really amazing, but everything else is normal and everyone’s treating me the same.
- One of Aly’s Olympic gold medals is already dented. She dropped one of them, although she’s not sure whether it’s the team medal or her individual floor medal. That’s too funny that luger David Moeller broke his tooth after biting his newly on medal in 2010-the USA girls should take note since they seem to like biting theirs!
- A preview of a celebration parade for Needham’s champion. The day will feature gymnastics, music, and food, with a speech from Aly.
- Aly and some of her USA teammates model earrings made for them by a local jeweler.
- Listen to an hour of Aly doing a radio interview on NewsWatch. She talks about the paparazzi, her pre-game meal routine, and life inside the Olympic village.
