TAMPA, Fl. (WFLA) — Aly Raisman announced Wednesday on The Ellen Show she plans to attend the 202 Tokyo Olympics.
Raisman said she plans to take a year off like she did after her 2012 Olympic debut in London.
If Raisman makes it to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, she will be one of only four female American gymnasts, along with Dominique Dawes, Muriel Grossfeld and Linda Metheny-Mulvihill, to compete in three Olympics.
Raisman was a member and captain of both the 2012 “Fierce Five” and 2016 “Final Five” U.S. women’s Olympic gymnastics teams.
In the 2012 London Olympics, she won gold medals in the team and floor competitions, as well as the bronze medal on the balance beam. She was named the most decorated American gymnast at the London Games.
At the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, Raisman won a gold medal in the team event, which made her and teammate Gabby Douglas the only Americans to win back-to-back team golds. Raisman snagged a silver medal in the individual all-around and the floor exercise.
With a total of six medals, she is the second-most decorated Olympic American female gymnast of all time, after Shannon Miller.
We haven’t seen the last of miss Aly Raisman, so stay tuned.
