23 Awesome things that Aly Raisman has done since she won two Olympic gold medals

U.S. Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman became America’s sweetheart during the 2012 London Games.

Her two gold medals and one bronze — and overall amazing performance — made everyone proud. And that was especially true in the Jewish community, as Raisman is a proud Boston Jew and danced her floor routines to “Hava Nagila.”

Since she returned from London, she has been documenting all the really fun things she’s been doing and uploading photos to her very active and popular Instagram account. We collected what we think are the 21 best things she’s done.

If you feel jealous… well, you should be, but remember all the crazy routines and drills she did to get to where she is now. So you better start practicing.
