Raisman Working Harder Than Ever for Rio
(14 votes, average 4.36 out of 5)

The March issue of International Gymnast is packed. For starters, it features an in-depth interview with Aly Raisman, who candidly discussed a variety of topics, including her Glasgow disappointment. "I think I learned from world championships that I put way too much pressure on myself."

The issue also includes an engaging chat with Great Britain's Louis Smith, whose celebrity status in the U.K. was never his goal. "I never became a gymnast to become famous! Sometimes I find it all a bit mad."

We caught up with 1992 Barcelona Olympic champion Tatiana Gutsu, who opened her own gym last month in Michigan. "All the emotions a human being could ever feel were going through my entire body and mind [in Barcelona]."

And we reached out to Alexander Alexandrov, who gave his personal memories of his former gymnast Valentin Mogilny, who passed away last November. "He became an extended part of my family … I still can't imagine that he is no longer with us."

There are profiles on Russia's Maria Paseka, Italy's Tea Ugrin and 5280's Vitaliy Guimaraes, and coverage of the Nadia Comaneci International Invitational, as well. And there's also a fun piece on how the gymnastics world changed after the Internet.
