Compulsories routines of Shannon Miller (who had the best compulsories beam score at the 1996 Olympics) and Ana Destefano (who had the worst.compulsories score at those same Olympics) 9.737 vs 8.012

Aly threw out the first pitch for the Chicago White Sox. Wrong color Sox Aly.
Aly Raisman, 19-year-old Olympic gymnast, will throw out a ceremonial first pitch. At the 2012 Olympics in London, she became the first U.S. women’s gymnast to win gold on floor exercise, winning with a margin of .400 points. The Needham, Mass., native also was the captain of the 2012 “fierce five” U.S. Olympic gymnastics team, which won its second-ever team gold. She won a bronze medal on the beam, becoming the most decorated U.S. gymnast at the 2012 Summer Games. She is currently training to qualify for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazi
