Today Aly Raisman revealed that the music choice in her gold medal-winning floor routine was, in a way, her own private tribute to the victims of the 1972 Munich Olympics Massacre. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the attacks.

Olympic officials ran into controversy this year by not including a moment of silence or dedication to the 11 Israeli athletes who were victims of the massacre.

As a Jewish American, Aly felt compelled to show respect for the dead in her own way. For her floor routine, she chose the traditional Jewish wedding song, "Have Nagila" for her background music.

Said Raisman,

"I am Jewish, that's why I wanted that floor music. I wanted something the crowd could clap to, especially being here in London."
