Aly Raisman Got Her Own Day And A Parade When She Returned Home From Rio
You know you're an American hero when you get your own day.
Aly Raisman returned to her hometown of Needham, Massachusetts to her own parade and everything.
According to "Entertainment Tonight," people swarmed the Olympian in celebration of Aly Raisman Day, which is now an official thing.
The US Olympic gymnast went all patriotic for the occasion and posted on Instagram,
Outfit for the rally today... So excited to see you all. Thank you Needham for putting this together and everyone for coming out. Can't wait to see you all and can't thank you enough for all the support!! Go USA.
Later that day, Raisman was pictured going through town on top of a firetruck proper hero style.
Aly added the snap on Instagram with the caption,
Today is Aly Raisman Day in Needham. THANK YOU Needham (that's me on the fire truck).
But, it looks like being a hero is actually quite tiring...
The 22-year-old took home three medals at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Her Olympic gains -- along with the efforts of the other members of the Final Five squad -- have been loved by everyone.
Even Chrissy Teigen tweeted at Aly Raisman asking to be friends.
Naturally, Raisman said yes.
OMG YES. I love u and ur husband. Can we please be best friends & can I send ur daughter some of my leotards? https://t.co/gVNqTnP4Re — Alexandra Raisman (@Aly_Raisman) August 25, 2016
