Aly Raisman won Gold medals in the 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympics in gymnastics. She has over 2 million followers on Instagram.
With her stunning looks and shapely body she is a favorite of photographers around the world. Obviously, to get to be as fit and strong as she is for a competition requires a lot of discipline and continuous practice. We admire the determination and focus that Aly and other gymnasts attain at such an early age.
In an interview with Boston Magazine she was asked the following question:
How do you get into competition mode? Do you psych yourself up?
“I just try to breathe deeply and think positive thoughts. There’s really nothing I do differently for competition, because if you do something different, you’re at risk for making a mistake in the routine. We kind of train every day like we’re competing, so by the time the meet comes we’re really confident and not nervous. Well, we’re obviously nervous, but we just think about doing the same thing we do every single day in the gym.”
