Gymnast Aly Raisman Predicted Olympic Victory When She Was 9

“In 20 years I will be… An Olympic gymnast,” Aly, who is now 18, wrote in her summer camp yearbook.

Nine years ago, gold medal-winning Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman was attending Wicosuta summer camp in New Hampshire. (It’s the same camp Malia Obama went to in 2010.) BuzzFeed Shift exclusively obtained a photo from the 2003 Camp Wicosuta yearbook, depicting the 9-year-old Raisman posing with her bunkmates. Raisman may have had the most ambitious answer to the question of where she’d be in 20 years, but perhaps also the most accurate: She correctly predicted she’d become an Olympic gymnast, and it only took nine years, not 20.

Way to go Aly!
