Olympic gymnast and double gold medalist Aly Raisman joined her sponsor, Poland Spring Water, at the American Cup at the DCU Center in Worcester on Saturday.

Raisman greeted fans, signed autographs and took pictures at the event. The gymnastics meet is particularly important to Raisman because she said it was where her career began to take off.

Raisman, 18, of Needham was the captain of the 2012 Team USA Women's Gymnastic team, also known as the "Fierce Five." Raisman won two gold medals and one bronze medal at the 2012 London Games, and will begin training for the 2016 Olympics at the end of this upcoming summer. In the meantime, she will appear as a contestant on the hit TV show, "Dancing with the Stars."

Watch our interview with Raisman, who discussed her life since the Olympics and the opportunity to compete for the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy with partner Mark Ballas on Dancing with the Stars.
