Two time Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman posted a message on Instagram to the boys who once made fun of her for her body type. 

"Shoutout to all the boys from 5th-9th grade who made fun of me for being “too strong” wrote Aly who posed nude for ESPN Body Issue last year.

"Thanks for forcing me to learn to love myself and my body."

"My muscular arms that were considered weird and gross when I was younger have made me one of the best gymnasts on the planet."

"Don’t ever let anyone tell you how you should or shouldn’t look. "

"There is no such thing as a perfect body type. I love being a part of the #PerfectNever campaign. #GirlPower #Supporteachother."

Raisman competed at the 2012 London Olympics and 2016 Rio Olympics. She won two gold and a bronze medal at her first Olympics and one gold and two silver medals at her second Olympics.

Raisman has expressed desire to making a third Olympic games.
