In September 2012, Raisman was injured during the Kellogg's Tour of Gymnastics Champions in Ontario, California, and decided to retire from competition but transitioned into being an ambassador and supporter of the sport while pursing other interests. In 2013, she appeared on Dancing with the Stars during which she finished in the Top 3.
At 215 pounds Raisman was one of the largest gymnasts ever to compete in the Olympic Games and was the heaviest gold medalist in both the team competition and in individual competition.
