Aly Raisman returns home to Needham after Olympics
NEEDHAM, Mass. (WHDH) -- It was a happy homecoming for Needham's own Aly Raisman Wednesday.
She's back in Massachusetts sporting her new bling. Now friends and family are gearing up for a big celebration.
The most decorated U.S. gymnast at the London Olympics arrived home in Boston to a packed terminal of fans, friends, and family.
“Being home is really exciting. I was in New York for a couple of days and I had a lot of fun but I’m just really happy to be home in Boston,” Raisman said.
Needham's own Aly Raisman is finally back in New England after winning two gold medals and a bronze during the London Games.
She spent the last few days in New York City seeing the sights and making TV appearances.
“We had the paparazzi following us everywhere in New York so that was a new experience we were really busy all day so it was cool,” Raisman said. “We got to meet Nicki Minaj and Jordin Sparks and Jennifer Garner so it was cool to be able to meet so many people.”
But has she met her admitted crush Bruins player Tyler Seguin?
“I don't know depends if he wants to meet me,” Raisman said.
She then broke out her medals; three new accessories she never has more than a few feet away from her at all times.
“They're really really heavy and I carry them in my backpack and I check them all the time to make sure they're still there ‘cause I don't want anyone to take them,” Raisman said.
After meeting with the media, it was off to her white limo and a police escort home to Needham where she was greeted by the family dogs. She even took a few shots of Sky 7 HD above her house.
