The US gymnast who won 6 Olympic medals, 3 golds, is one of only 8 women in ‘Top 100 List’
Times of Israel Reports: Three Olympic gold medals. Six total. Captain of the victorious 2012 and 2016 US women’s gymnastics teams.
Now Aly Raisman can add one more accolade to her list: Most famous Jewish athlete in the world.
Raisman, 23, the two-time US Olympian from Massachusetts, is the only Jew on ESPN’s 2017 list of the 100 most famous athletes worldwide. She sneaked in at number 99, immediately below Aussie golfer Adam Scott (not the guy who plays Ben in “Parks and Rec”), and above Mohamed Salah, an Egyptian soccer player for the Italian team Roma.
Raisman is one of only eight women on the list, which includes her US gymnastics teammate Simone Biles (#48), martial artist Ronda Rousey (#16) and tennis pros Serena Williams (#19) and Maria Sharapova (#23)
