Olympic Gold medalist, Aly Raisman, posed for ESPN Magazine’s Body issue and the results show just how incredibly ripped gymnasts are.

Daily Mail – A gymnast’s body is often one of the most battered, bruised and overworked within the world of sport – but that doesn’t mean it can’t be displayed with pride.

Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, 21, who won three medals for Team USA at the 2012 Games, has once again solidified her title as one of the country’s top athletes, as she joins a host of sportsmen and women in posing nude for ESPN’s famous Body issue, showing off her incredibly muscular form while taking on tough gymanstic poses – all while in the buff.

‘Instead of being insecure about my muscles, I’ve learned to love them,’ Aly told the magazine. ‘I don’t even think of it as a flaw anymore because it’s made me into the athlete that I am.’

‘You can always spot the gymnast,’ Aly, who competed in the 16th season of Dancing with the Stars after she returned from London, added. ‘They are so ripped and so strong. Even if I was just wearing a T-shirt, my arms would just be more muscular than other girls’. If we were playing sports, I would just crush them.’
