We all know a lot about Aly Raisman at this point. How could we not? One thing that all of us know that many don’t like to admit for some reason, is that Aly is kind of hot. She is hot for two reasons. One is her personality. She is natural, focused, athletic, driven, and totally herself. And what could be hotter than that? But she also is just plain old hot even without those other things. You may not have noticed it, what with all the athletic escapades surrounding her, but let’s face it, Aly is kind of a smoke-show. Is that so wrong to say?
The whole world is following the 2016 Rio Olympics, but Aly Raisman, captain of the “Fierce Five” 2012 USA Women’s Olympic Gymnastics Team, stands above the rest. Well, if truth be told, not really because she is super-short, but you get the point. She was a gold medalist in the London Olympics in 2010 and keeps kicking butt now.
If you want to see just how hot she is do one of three things. You could check her Instagram. Or you could check some of the photos of her in the 2015 ESPN The Magazine “Body Issue”- it is kind of mind blowing actually.
But the best thing to do is just scroll down and check out some of the photos below that we found for you of Aly looking amazing. Here are the 15 hottest photos of Aly Raisman. We are sure that you will agree that all of them are worthy of a Gold Medal.
15. Classy Aly
This is a look that many of you may not have seen a whole lot from Aly. She looks all grown up in her dress, and really quite gorgeous besides. She should be a bit more grown up, though. At the 2012 Olympics, she kicked some butt all over the place. She got gold medals in the team and floor competitions, and got a bronze medal for how she competed on the balance beam. She is already off to a good start this year with a few medals and looks to be ready to grab a few more. This is a totally hot shot of Aly; she sure does clean up well when she gets all gussied up to go out on the town. Not that she does not look good when she is competing as well. Alright, let’s face it, she always looks pretty amazing out there.
14. Aly In Yoga Pants
If you are a true red-blooded American male, then your eyes probably immediately moved towards Aly’s butt in this photo. So this is not a Kardashian-type butt, not even a little bit. Yes, the size may remind you of that a little bit, and yes, the pose and the pants may make you think of some photo that you have come across before that had a Kardashian in it, but let’s be honest, even if it may sound a bit cruel. The butt you are looking at in the above photo is total muscle, and is honed from years of hard work. A Kardashian butt is not made of muscle at all, and is honed from years of eating a lot of expensive cheese. While the two things may look a bit similar at first, we promise you there is no lingering similarity.
13. Aly In Action
This is a photo of Aly competing, which is when much of her true beauty tends to come out. She is graceful, she is an athlete, and she is proud of what she does. She also is proud of her sport in general and is a student of its history. In fact, according to Cosmo “In the floor final routine in 2012, Aly placed first for a routine she performed to the tune of ‘Hava Nagila.’ She dedicated her floor routine to the 11 Israeli Olympians who were murdered by Palestinian terrorists at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich.” Aly certainly has a lot of class, and is proud of her heritage- it was truly special to see her pay homage to the victims of such a horrible act. She has quite the presence for a woman so young, as he is just 22-years-old.
12. Aly On DWTS
Those abs, though. Seriously? Aly looks totally amazing and is obviously in incredible shape. If you don’t believe me, check her out when she once appeared on Dancing With the Stars. She competed with Mark Ballas, and wound up in 4th place. You know, 4th place is pretty good, and in most competitions one would be pretty happy to wind up there. One has to think, though, that an Olympic athlete might possibly not really get that into not winning a Gold, Silver, or Bronze medal. After competing in the Olympics, coming in 4th at anything must really stink. And Aly does not just win in the Olympics. She was also a member of the gold-winning American teams at the 2011 and 2015 World Championships. Not bad Aly, not bad at all.
11. High Kick Aly
Here is another photo of Aly doing what she does best, competing in gymnastics. She also always look so amazing when she is doing what she does best, which is what makes female athletes so attractive in general. When you see a woman just doing what she loves, and doing it so naturally, without any thought of what she looks like, then you see her true inner beauty, and there is no doubt that is who Aly is. When this photo was taken the last thing on her mind was how gorgeous she looked. She was trying to do something perfectly, something that she loves, and also trying to beat her competition at the same time. The fact that she looks so hot doing so is almost unfair, both to her competition, and to other women out there as well.
10. Golden Aly
So Aly does look just a tiny bit out of place in this one, but that is exactly what makes her look so hot. She still has a bit of the goofy “What am I doing here on the Red Carpet” thing going on, and how cool is that? After all, Aly grew up as a gymnast, not on the red carpet. According to this, “Raisman began gymnastics when she was two years old. She attributes her initial love for the sport to the “Magnificent Seven,” the gold-medal-winning U.S. women’s team at the 1996 Summer Olympics, whose performances she watched on VHS.” Her mom was also a gymnast so that probably didn’t hurt either. It all sort of fell in line, but that does not mean it did not involve a lot of hard work, to go along with a lot of natural talent.
9. Mid-Air Split
This is another fabulous photo of Aly. So graceful, so classy, and yes, also kind of hot. She actually is totally hot for a grandmother. Yeah, you heard me right. According to the New York Post “Grandma” didn’t just buck the odds. She was so impressive in making her second Olympics team, she was voted team captain of the U.S. women’s gymnastics team for a second time. At 22, Aly Raisman was given the “Grandma” nickname by teammates because of her affinity for naps and her “old age” in a sport dominated by teenagers. Really? My grandma was not nearly as cool as that. Actually I take that back, my grandma was totally cool, but still when I think of grandmothers, Aly Raisman is not the first thing that normally comes to mind.
8. The Pink Gymnast
And here is another lovely but tasteful photo of Aly’s bum. Hey, I was not the first one to think of it- one website gave her butt a gold medal saying “Now that the talcum powder has settled and the U.S. women’s gymnastics team has competed in the London 2012 Olympics, one of the most important medals is ready to be given out in the “excellence in booty” program in women’s gymnastics. At the London 2012 Olympics, the U.S. women’s gymnast with the finest booty goes to Aly Raisman.” We really cannot argue with the taste or the score of this judge. All we really can offer is that, although it is true that it offered quite a performance in 2012, we feel that it has worked really hard to get even better in 2016.
7. Aly In The Buff
ESPN Magazine’s “The Body Issue” really did giveth and taketh away, more than many things in recent memory. The issue was full of female and male athletes, doing tasteful nudes, where nothing could really be seen and it all could be at the same time. It sounds great in theory, but looking through this issue is really the epitome of going on a trick or treat expedition. I mean for every Aly Raisman, showing off her gorgeous yet athletic frame, there is a photo of some random dude like rugby player Todd Clever, naked and running through the waves with a ball under his arm. Check it out, I dare you. But I will warn you- once you have seen DeAndre Jordan naked and dunking a basketball, you can’t unsee it. Ever.
6. Aly Shows Off Her Gold
That smile, that face, that all natural beauty. Face it, Aly is hot. What could possibly be her secret? How does she look so good? Maybe it is all the sleep? She once told Boston Magazine: “A few days a week I do two-a-day, so I’ll go from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and then come home and take a nap, and then be back at the gym from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. By the end of the day, I am so exhausted.” So it sounds like she sleeps from like noon to four, then does the gym all morning and again at night, then she goes to sleep again. No wonder she looks so awesome all the time. I would think most people would if all they did was exercise and sleep all the time. Maybe I should try that? Nah, I think I will stick to my unhealthy habits, for now anyway.
5. Aly Shows Off Her Skills
Here is yet another fabulous photo of Aly looking absolutely incredible while she does what she does best. But what does she do when she is not competing? Well she once told People Magazine: “I like to do completely nothing. I like to lay on the couch and be lazy for a day,” she told People at the Team USA Media Summit in the spring. “But when it is nice out I like to go for walks.” She added: “I live in a private area and I have two dogs so I like to relax and go for walks with them and spend time with my family and friends.” She is totally into those dogs too. The word is that when she is not around, she has to Facetime with the dogs just about every day. Good job Aly, you get a gold medal at being a good dog mom, too.
4. Aly Shows Off Her Flexibility
While Aly obviously is still at the top of her game, she took a few years off, before she busted it to get back on top and win some more medals. This might not sound like that big of a deal, but just think about it- every woman that does gymnastics competitively in the world is busting it trying to beat you and you take time off? One of the people trying to beat her is gold medalist and teammate Simone Biles. Raisman quotes Biles as saying in an interview with ESPN she’s “more proud” of Raisman and “more happy for her” than she is of herself, given the amount of hard work that Raisman put into making her long-hoped-for comeback and calling her a “role model.” Oh yeah and by the way, isn’t this photo of Aly totally hot?
3. She Can Rock Purple, Too!
Well, okay then. Let’s just be honest for just a moment here. Just for a quick moment and then we go back to what we were doing before. Sometimes there are certain things that are hot about a gymnast that are not really meant to be that way. There will just be a pause in the action, or a photo taken of some sort, and it will just be like “boom, did I just see that? And if I did, what was it that I actually saw? Because that honestly did not seem real, and if it was real, is it okay that I got turned on by it a little?” Welcome to watching female gymnastics at the Olympics. We have to tell you that yes, it is okay. It isn’t your fault, and that Aly sure does look really hot sometimes at some very surprising times. It is what it is.
2. Smile Aly!
This is another gorgeous photo of Aly. In so many photos Aly looks like a nice girl that is in your high school English class, like someone you would ask a question to about Beowulf before a big exam, which makes her veteran status even more interesting. She once said in an interview with ESPN: The Magazine: “I guess I’m considered “older” for a gymnast. I’m 21 and I’ll be 22 in the Olympics year [2016 Rio Games]. 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.” Yeah, you might joke Aly, but you won’t when you are 50. Trust me.
1. Aly Loves Doing The Splits
So with this photo you have now seen 15 photos of Aly Raisman, each of them that show how attractive she is, in all sorts of different ways. In some of the photos it is her body and her athletic butt that gets you, in others it is her grace and her poise, and her dignity, yet in others she just looks like a very beautiful young woman. As I said earlier in this piece, Aly does seem to have all aspects of the whole thing covered. Her single mindedness, her drive, and her simplicity only makes her all the more hot, mostly because she really probably does not know just how hot she is. Aly we hope you are not mad at us that we celebrated your looks a little bit. Let us do that just for a moment, while you and the rest of the world celebrate all of your athletic accomplishments. You never know, though, “Grandma” could always come back for one more run.
