A Club Gym Nerd member asked for a deep dive into the gymnastics and activism career of one of the true champions of the sport, our beloved Aly Raisman. We discuss Consistency and muscles and cardio (and tugboats for some reason) Owning things we thought about Aly when we first saw her as a junior elite that turned out to be false Her 2010 American Cup performance and what that beam routine told us about Aly The "mini-Alicia" years, and when she broke out to establish her own identity The 2012 Olympics, an AA tiebreak, and a beam petition The lie of "she'll never get those scores internationally" Behind the scenes memories of Aly at competitions 1.5 to double Arabian to layout. We gush for a while, and discuss why no one else has done it The comeback, and why her final competition was also her best one The post-gymnastics years, her platform, her activism, her quest for justice and commitment to sending monsters to prison and getting receipts What is Aly's ultimate legacy?
