Aly Raisman asked out on a Double Date by Oakland Raiders player

Aly Raisman on floor at the 2016 Rio Olympics
When she finished her floor routine in the team final at the 2012 London Olympics, Raisman immediately burst into tears. In Rio, it was all smiles.

OAKLAND, CA (WCMH) — Gold medalist Aly Raisman is back in the United States after her great performance in Rio, and now she might have a date.

Oakland Raiders tight end Colton Underwood sent her a video congratulating her hard work at the Olympics. He then ended the video asking her to go on a double date with him and long snapper Andrew East.

East is married to 2008 gold medalist Shawn Johnson, who happens to be Raisman’s friend.

After watching the video, Raisman giggled and told Yahoo Sports that she would go with him on that date.

We’re not sure when that date will happen. In a couple of weeks, Raisman and the Final Five team plan to go across the country on their champions tour. That includes a stop here at Nationwide Arena in Columbus on October 22. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
