Michael Phelps and seven other Olympians have all shared the songs that get them pumped, and now captain of the USA Women’s Gymanistics Team Aly Raisman is sounding off as well.

The 22-year-old competitor shared her playlist with EW and we gotta say that along with being a world class athlete, she also has some darn good taste in music. Read the interview here.

Jason Derulo – “Try Me” featuring J.Lo & Matoma: “My teammate Simone [Biles] and I started listening to this song at World Championships last October.” FYI – they won that event.

Colbie Caillat – “Live It Up”:“I love Colbie’s music. I’ve been a big fan for a long time.”

Rascal Flatts – “Rewind”: This song has been out for a while but I love country music. It makes me feel happy and calm.”

Ariana Grande – “Into You”: “This song is definitely a pump up song. It makes me want to get out of my seat and start dancing!”

Watch Michael Phelps and the rest of Team USA do the ‘Running Man Challenge’ on Carpool Karaoke

Chase Bryant – “Little Bit of You”: “I like the lyrics of the song. Country music always puts me in a good mood.”

And when Aly Raisman just wants to unwind after a hard day of training? “I watch How I Met Your Mother on Netflix. I’ve seen most of the episodes. The show is so funny. Right now, with all the stress of competing, I try and watch anything that makes me laugh.”

Yesterday, Raisman earned a gold medal along with the rest of Team USA’s gymnasts. Congrats, Aly! And go Team USA!
