“I was being given a silver medal at the Olympic games and being told I’m sorry was kind of like a validation in my heart that I had failed.” Despite leaving Beijing with three silver medals and one gold medal, Johnson’s morale had taken an irreversible fall.“It was now about what I wore and how I looked,” Johnson recalls. reading all these blogs and reading newspaper articles and seeing headlines of people criticize my weight and my appearance and my personality and my character.It affected me immensely.” To handle such critical press by way of completely ignoring it would go beyond an Olympian feat.It just ended up working perfectly.” Now, Raisman has confirmed to People magazine that she and Underwood had “kept it quiet for a while,” but have been dating since the MTV Video Music Awards in August.The couple showed up together on the red carpet at Sports Illustrated's Sportsperson of the Year awards in New York City on Monday.“If I failed at being a gymnast then I failed at being a human being,” she recounts feeling.
