One partnership that the Olympian did accept was an invitation to a major endorsement deal with Poland Spring water.
On August 21, Raisman broke the news: "So excited to announce that I am partnering with Poland Spring water!"
Poland Spring's senior marketing manager, Seona Skwara stated that Raisman is "an inspiration for so many people, but it's also how she got to where she got to, and that's by putting a lot of hard work and effort to really achieve her personal best. That combined with her down-to-earth, genuine character is what the brand looks for."
At an event in Massachusetts, Aly expressed, "I've been using Poland Spring water for so many years, so it's an honor they'd want to work with me. Plus they're from New England, so it's really exciting."
According to the Boston Globe, Raisman has had deals with GK Elite Sportswear, Kellogg's, and Polo Ralph Lauren in the past. Additionally, she is the second athlete that Poland Spring has endorsed, preceded by John Cox. Below are a few of Aly's tweet highlights since the Olympic Games ended.
