    Aly Raisman & Mark Ballas - Season 16


    Aly Raisman
    Season 16

    Pro: Mark Ballas


    Just 18 years old, Aly Raisman captained the U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team to its first team gold medal since the 1996 Olympic Games. Raisman added the United States' first ever gold medal in the floor exercise and also won a bronze on the balance beam, making her the most decorated American gymnast in London.

    A respected leader, Raisman backboned the women's victory in the team event at the 2011 World Championships where they upset Russia to win gold for the first time since 2007. In her career, Raisman has accumulated 19 international medals and eight U.S. Senior National Championship medals, earning a reputation as one of Team USA’s most consistent performers.

    The eldest of four kids in her family, Raisman comes from a Jewish background and famously performed her gold medal-winning floor exercise to the traditional Jewish wedding song, “Hava Nagila,” for which she earned worldwide recognition in the Jewish community.

    Since returning from London, she has been named Bostonian of the Year by The Boston Globe, was a presenter at the Video Music Awards, appeared on Fashion Police and most recently won an award at the Cartoon Network Hall of Game Awards.

    In her free time, Raisman can be found shopping, reading fashion magazines, hanging out with friends and family, or listening to some of her favorite music.

    Hopefully, Mark will leave the spats at home when dancing with Aly.

    She would be paired up with Mark (as all the gymnasts are) but I do like her spunk and personality. I think she'd put him in his place - because his antics only hurt the pair more and more now in the show.
