NEEDHAM, Mass. — Gymnast Aly Raisman has gotten a hero’s welcome following her medal-winning performances at the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
The 22-year-old’s suburban Boston hometown of Needham, Massachusetts, hosted a “Rally for Aly” Saturday morning. She also threw out the first pitch at Fenway Park on Friday before the Red Sox game.
Raisman won two individual silver medals and a team gold medal in the games that wrapped up earlier this month.
She has the second most Olympic medals by a U.S. gymnast, with six. Former Olympian Shannon Miller has seven.
The town hosted a parade and rally for Raisman when she returned from the 2012 Olympic games in London with two gold medals and a bronze medal.
