Needham pauses as Raisman wins two more medals
As Needham’s Aly Raisman took to the Olympic stage again Tuesday, winning a gold medal for her floor routine and a bronze in the balance beam, residents and her family members across town were crossing their fingers for their hometown hero. Some gathered around high-definition televisions. Some looked up Raisman’s scores online. And still others tried to shield themselves from the news, hoping to wait to watch NBC’s taped broadcast later in the evening.
