Gymnast Aly Raisman Shows Off Her Strikingly Athletic Body In NUDE Shoot

At 21, little scares Aly. Her body confidence lead her to participate in ESPN's Body Issue, where she bares all for the camera. But this inspiring young athlete was undeterred to show some skin, and openly talked about her career experiences so far. In 2012, Aly won a gold medal at the Olympics with her gymnastics team. She loves the rush that comes with such an achievement, but she admits that not every day feels so glorious. Training is hard work, especially since she will be competing in the 2016 games. "You work your whole life for a minute-and-a-half beam routine. I work out six days, 32 hours a week for the dream of competing at the Olympics again." she tells ESPN. "I'm always eating healthy, always going to bed early. Everything I put into my body is for the purpose of gymnastics." When on the topic of dieting, Aly combatted the misconception that her sport is "known for" eating disorders. "I've never had an eating disorder, and I'm proud of that. I think gymnastics in the past had a bad reputation for that, but it's not an issue anymore." she candidly explains. Aly reveals that unlike girls her age who enjoy getting dressed up and wearing makeup, she is the most comfortable in the gym, in spandex and wearing not a trace of makeup. It is where she feels most beautiful. And looking at her shoot, her inner body confidence shines through. What do you think of this gorgeous Olympian? Would you ever consider going nude for a photoshoot? Share your thoughts!
