12 Things I Fell In Love With In 2012 - The Fierce Five
United States team captain Aly Raisman stands atop the podium after winning an individual gold medal in the floor exercise final at the 2012 Olympic Games. Raisman, whose power and consistency had long been eclipsed by the likes of Gabby Douglas and Jordyn Wieber, led the team to a gold medal finish in the team - and claimed two individual medals for herself. She won the bronze in the beam final shortly before winning the floor final. With her floor gold, Raisman became Team USA’s most decorated female gymnast at the 2012 Olympics.
Gabby Douglas is amazing and adorable, but Aly Raisman is my favorite and I am so happy for her.
