Aly Raisman returns to gymnastics training – OlympicTalk


Four members of the Fierce Five are now in California. The fifth is on the East Coast, training to possibly join her teammates on an American team later.

U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Team Captain Aly raisman resumed training, as confirmed by Boston Globe.

Raisman had tweeted in June that she was back.

“It took a long time for me, but one morning I woke up and said, I’m ready to come back,” she told the newspaper. “Now that I’m back, I feel like a little kid again. “

Raisman is back with his former coach, Mihai Brestyan, at his old gymnasium in Burlington, Mass., after a busy year. She appeared in the “Dancing with the Stars” finale, threw a first pitch at a Red Sox game and was tested for drugs at “Access Hollywood”.

In addition to team gold, Raisman won gold on floor exercises, bronze on beam and missed bronze in the all-around with a tiebreaker in London. The newspaper reported that Raisman may be training with an eye on the all around in 2016.

Of course, Raisman will not participate this season. The United States named their team for the world championships on Sunday.

Raisman, 19, was the oldest member of the US Olympic champion team in London. Therefore, it would appear that she is facing the highest odds of making the 2016 Olympic squad in five, especially because she took the longest post-Olympic break.

Gabby Douglas returned to his Iowa gym in May and is now train without a coach in California.

Jordyn wieber was training in Michigan earlier this year, but has not competed this season. She’s about to start her freshman year at UCLA and possibly become the head of the school’s gymnastics team. Wieber can’t compete collegially because she turned pro.

Mckayla maroney and Kyla ross are part of the squad for the world championships in Antwerp, Belgium, next month.

No American woman has made a back-to-back Olympic team since 2000. Five of the six in 2008 made attempts and failed.

“I feel like I’ve done it before,” Raisman told the newspaper. “So if that doesn’t go my way, at least I did what I always wanted to do.”

Here’s a video from last month’s US Championships, where Raisman and Douglas talked a bit about 2016:
