Wow! She looks amazing!
Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman is one of a few sports stars featured in ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue this year — and she wasn't holding anything back!
In her shot, the 21-year-old gold medalist is completely naked showing off her fit frame, all while posing gracefully with rings on the low beam.
That's quite the feat!
Though there's another side to Aly, which she reveals in the interview:
"Every day is a challenge. Even though at the 2012 Olympics we were so happy to win the gold medal, every day is not like that. I think people don't understand that; people don't see that side of the sport – the frustration, how much it takes a toll on your body, and mentally as well."
We can only imagine!
But she hasn't ruled out the next Summer Olympics! She confessed:
"I'll be 22 in the Olympics year. If I make the team, I'll be the oldest U.S. gymnast. My body is a little bit more achy than it was before, but at the same time I feel like I'm smarter now and able to understand the recovery process. I always joke that I'm 21 going on 50."
Older, but clearly wiser! And she's even applied that to her own body confidence!
"I've never had an eating disorder, and I'm proud of that… instead of being insecure about my muscles, I've learned to love them. I don't even think of it as a flaw anymore because it's made me into the athlete that I am. I think imperfection is beauty."
Aly is speaking the truth!
Love this spread and her interview! What are your thoughts???

You've seen the Ohio State marching band before, right?
They're that incredible marching band that pulls off the most amazing halftime show performances EVER!
If not, check out some of the coolest marching we've ever seen HERE!
But even when the marching band isn't there (because it's not a football game), Ohio State's halftime shows are still something spectacular!
At a recent show, they had an AH-Mayzing woman perform: the red panda acrobat.
She not only rides a super tall unicycle… she can do crazy tricks with bowls too.
We don't wanna give anything away so just go take a look yourself!

You might have watched the real positive side of things happen live during the Olympics, but what you DIDN'T see is why we're getting a tv biopic of young gymnast Gabby Douglas!
Lifetime has just greenlighted The Gabby Douglas Story, which will be an original movie starring Imani Hakim and Sydney Mikayla as the two-time Olympic gold medalist! Gabby also has a role, but we're not sure how she fits in, when the other two ladies are playing Gabby during her childhood/teen years respectively!
Gabby started gymnastics at 6 years old, and has been called a real-life prodigy — she's also had to battle bullying and racism. She also had to leave her mother, three siblings and grandmother in Virginia Beach at age 14 and move to Des Moines, Iowa, to train. Obvs it was the right choice!
If you've ever wanted an interesting true story to be a movie — look no further!
Oh, and if you've ever wanted to know about her life AFTER the olympics… CLICK HERE!
