Aly Raisman Announces New Book Titled ‘Fierce’

|

Aly Raisman is only 23 years old, and yet she’ll already have a book about her life hitting bookstores in 2017.

On Monday, she tweeted that she is writing a book, titled “Fierce.

The two-time Olympian gold medalist was a member of the “Fierce Five” during the 2012 Olympics who won the gold medal team event in the Summer Games that year. Raisman was the captain of that gymnastics team.

That’s probably enough to fill up a book.

It isn’t totally written, though. And she recently went to twitter to try to source some inspiration for topics to include. They were wide-ranging and brazenly forward on occasion.

Raisman appears to be making the transition from athlete to celebrity. Coming out with a book is an obvious step in that direction. She has also made an appearance on Dancing With the Stars during the 16th season of the show. She placed fourth.

That means Dancing With the Stars is harder than the Olympics.

Raisman has been praised for her demeanor both in her success at the Olympics and her reaction to being defeated and receiving less publicity than teammate Simon Biles.

Her book, “Fierce,” will be hitting the shelves on Nov. 14.
