Raisman earns spot on U.S. gymnastics team

(JTA) – Jewish-American Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman has been named again to the U.S. women’s Olympics gymnastics team.

In 2012, she earned two gold medals at the London Olympics: for floor exercise and as part of the team competition. Afterward, Raisman took time off from competitive gymnastics to take advantage of her newfound fame, including competing on Dancing With The Stars and being a special guest at the 2013 Maccabiah Games in Israel.

At 22, Raisman is the oldest member of the team, which reportedly has earned her the nickname “Grandma.”
