Aly Raisman Profile for Jewish Woman Magazine

It's no secret that I love Aly Raisman despite the form issues so I was thrilled to get a chance to write a profile about her for Jewish Woman Magazine.

Though it was too close to the Games to speak to Aly herself, I did get a chance to speak to her mother and found her smart, funny, and forthcoming with her opinions. So basically your typical Jewish woman.

The best thing I learned--that it was Martha Karolyi who suggested that Aly use Jewish wedding music for her floor routine. Is Martha a fan of Fiddler on the Roof? Somebody check her Netflix queu.

Read the whole story here.

And thanks to Heather Maynez for providing the fabulous photos that accompanied the piece.

I love her tumbling! I hope she wins gold on that.
The music is so fun- I wish I wan going to be in the audience to clap along!
