Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman‘s heart of gold just got highlighted in a skin-tight top. The 26-year-old former athlete, who spends more time reaching out to others and enjoying her gardening than any body flaunting, kept up her humble and kind streak last night – followed by 2.1 million on Instagram, the 2012 “Fierce Five” and 2016 “Final Five” captain updated with a gorgeous indoor photo, little in the way of fuss, and a caption that focused on others, not herself. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo, plus why this gymnast ain’t your average. Aly, who yesterday updated with her fruit and vegetable seedlings with admissions she’d planted her melons too early last year, was keeping it gentle here, but the photo was stunning. It showed the Boston resident by a plain wall and smiling with a glowing complexion, a high ponytail, and while in a tight, round-neck black top with long sleeves.
Aly, looking right at the camera with one hand on her hip, sent out good looks and good vibes.
A low-frills caption from Raisman reached out to her followers as she wrote: “How’s your day going?” adding: “How are you feeling?”
Unlike half of celebrity Instagram, where fans don’t seem to notice the captions, this girl is getting them to pay attention. “Honestly not well,” one fan replied, saying: “I’m trying my best #survivorstogether.”
“Thanks for promoting honest conversation about mental health and taking care of yourself!” another added – Raisman is hugely open about her mental health, specifically her battles with anxiety.
Aly, who last year revealed she could barely “walk” after the 2016 Olympics left her in a dark place, has credited both Pilates and meditation for her journey back to health. Awareness also ranks highly for her.
“I think about it, and I would never talk to a loved one or my younger sister or my mom or my future daughter the way that I talk to myself,” she said in 2020. Scroll for her bikini body and lavender spandex!
Raisman added: “So I just sort of really think about that and how important it is to treat ourselves like we’d treat a loved one.”
If you don’t live inside Aly’s Instagram, the adorable account featuring blue-eyed dog Mylo also includes the star’s promotional content, this largely on the soft side as she partners up with brands including Aerie, Silk Milk, Amazon, plus companies keen to get home gardeners showing their green thumbs.
