The 21-year-old Olympic gymnast, who was part of the Fierce Five during the 2012 London Summer Olympics, bared it all in a stunning shot for the glossy, and opened up about trying for the 2016 team.
“After one Olympics, most people are just burnt out,” she explained. “I’ll be 22 in the Olympics year. If I make the team, I’ll be the oldest U.S. gymnast. My body is a little bit more achy than it was before, but at the same time I feel like I’m smarter now and able to understand the recovery process. I always joke that I’m 21 going on 50.”
Aly added about her body image: “I’ve never had an eating disorder, and I’m proud of that. [And] instead of being insecure about my muscles, I’ve learned to love them. I don’t even think of it as a flaw anymore because it’s made me into the athlete that I am. I think imperfection is beauty.”
