Mark Ballas couldn't be more proud of Aly Raisman!
The DWTS pro, who partnered with Raisman
for the show's 16th season
in 2013, took to Instagram on Friday to share a sweet post congratulating the gymnast on her incredible performances in the Rio Olympics.
"Words can't describe how proud of this girl I am," Ballas wrote, along with a photo of one of his performances with Raisman. "I teared up watching her finish her floor routine last night, I remember having chats about her going to the RIO Olympics."
"I got to experience this girls [sic] tremendous hard work & dedication first hand, she will never shy away from a challenge or let anything hold her back no matter what obstacle lays ahead of her," he continued. "Not only is she an incredible athlete & student but has a heart made of pure gold, always kind, always caring & always genuine. I'm so proud of you @alyraisman Congratulations."
Raisman, who placed fourth with Ballas on Dancing With the Stars, earned a gold medal in in the women's gymnastics team event in Rio earlier this week, and silver in the all-around competition -- and has definitely been feeling the love lately.
Hours before Ballas' post, the 22-year-old gymnast took to Instagram to share an adorable quote from teammate Simone Biles.
"'I think I was more proud of Aly getting silver than me gold,'" Biles' quote read. "'She's worked so incredibly hard during her comeback. She's one of my role models, and I don't think there's anyone I'd rather share the podium with. I'm more happy for her than I am myself.'"
And the day before, Raisman shared a sweet note that teammates Madison Kocian and Laurie Hernandez left on her bed after she took home silver.
"When you come back to find this on your bed :) so sweet. I have the best teammates," she captioned a picture of the letter. "Gabby [Douglas] sent me the sweetest text. When we walked in the door Laurie, Madison & gabby swarmed us with lots of hugs."
Raisman has clearly attracted quite the famous fan club.
