RIO DE JANEIRO (CBS) – Needham’s Aly Raisman is an Olympic gold medalist once again.
Raisman and the rest of the “Final Five” blew the competition away on Tuesday, coming in first in the women’s gymnastics team all-around.
One six-second clip of the opening to her “insane” floor routine has been retweeted more than 18,000 times.
“That was the best routine I’ve seen Aly Raisman do,” one TV commentator said. “Unbelievable.”
Her performance earned her a score of 15.366.
Raisman weighed in on the social media buzz around her routine on Wednesday morning, saying it took a lot of hard work.
She’ll next compete in the women’s individual all-around gymnastics event on Thursday.
