Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas Officially Back on National Team

At the conclusion of the final 2014 National Team camp, USA Gymnastics welcomed back Olympic Gold medalists Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas to the national team.

Gabby had returned to camp earlier this year, but was waylaid in her comeback due to her gym switching fiasco.

This was Aly's first time at camp since she won the team gold and the floor exercise gold in London. Aly had returned to training this year, but opted to train in stealthy mode until her official return this month.

Also returning to camp was Rachel Gowey, who injured her ankle during podium training at the P&G Championships over the summer.  Rachel's place on the national team was rightly reinstated. Rachel's teammate, junior Victoria Nguyen was also added to the junior national team roster.
