Aly Raisman knows the doubters are out there.
She’s 20 years old and has been absent from competitive gymnastics for two years. As the Needham native prepares for her first national monitoring camp in October since 2012, she has something to say to those who claim she might not be able to mount a comeback.
“I think it’s ridiculous,” said Raisman prior to a weekend full of appearances at the 2014 U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Pittsburgh. “I am older, but I am more confident. I’m wiser because I’m older.”
