Fans of Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman took to their Instagram to share throwback pictures of the retired athlete in celebration of summer. She has since lent her experience at boot camps for young gymnastic girls and encouraged them to pursue their dreams.

The former Fierce Five captain transitioned to mindfulness after retiring from professional gymnastics and hardly shared leotard or bikini pictures, but her fans kept a stash for rainy days. One such fan page dedicated a post to her booty, sharing old pictures of Raisman in bathing suits.

Something Old

The cover photo was from her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit spread days when she wore a black bikini with the top off and showed her toned bum to the camera alongside a bright smile. Her breeze-blown brown hair also fell to her back while she propped the unworn bikini top against her shoulder and chest.

The fan chose a promotional photoshoot picture for the next slide and here she showed off her full backside in a ribbed two-piece which left print marks on her butt and thighs. In the final slide, Raisman wore a black halter neck one piece with a thong accentuating her perky butt.

It's Okay To Take Social Media Breaks

As part of her mindfulness campaign, Raisman showed fans some of her Yoga exercises and explained why they've not seen much of her on social media in recent years. She wrote,

"This is your sign to take a pause and get some fresh air! Whenever social media begins to feel like too much, I know that’s my sign to take a break and remind myself that there’s more to my story than my Instagram story…"

Then she asked them,

"How do you prioritize your mental health?"

Mental Health Awareness

Luckily for Raisman, she has her trusted pet dog, Mylo around to help her deal with overwhelming stress. She was very active during Mental Health Awareness month (May) sharing messages and videos in support of people suffering from Mental Health stress and body dysmorphia.

She wrote,

"I know there is so much pressure to look a certain way... I created a collection of guided meditations called “Accepting Your Body”."

'You're Not Alone'

Raisman continued saying,

"I wanted to create this because there are many days where I could use a reminder to be kind to myself & appreciate my body & I know so many can relate. I hope this is a reminder that no matter what you’re going through you’re not alone & there is help out there..."

She also started the exercise in her comments saying they should write things about themselves that they liked.
