Famous folks from Burlington
While training, the Olympic gold medal winner spent at least seven hours in Brestyan's Gymnastics in Burlington four days a week - double sessions at 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. - plus three-hour morning workouts on Wednesday and Saturday.
Raisman lived in Needham but it became impractical for Raisman to juggle academics and gymnastics, which caused her to miss 50 days of school last year. So Raisman attended senior year online at Needham High, getting much of her work done on weekends.
Raisman is pictured training in Burlington in January.
