Gymnast Aly Raisman won three Olympic gold medals -- and six medals overall -- while serving as national team captain at the 2012 Games in London and 2016 Games in Rio.

Reebok's Perfect Never campaign is all about women embracing their bodies, and athletes have played a major role in spreading that message.

And now gymnast Aly Raisman is joining the campaign, too.

"Shoutout to all the boys from 5th-9th grade who made fun of me for being 'too strong,'" Raisman wrote in a stunning photo on her Instagram page. "Thanks for forcing me to learn to love myself and my body."

There's more #PerfectNever inspiration on Twitter and Instagram, too, if you need a bigger dose of empowerment today from powerful women.
