What Olympian isn’t really proud of winning a medal? Most show it off proudly on the podium and then maybe walk around with it for a couple of days when they get home, at which time they put it in, like, a display case or something, and move on to the next phase of their life.
But that’s not how Alicia Sacramone rolls. While fellow gymnast Nastia Liukin was hanging out with Maria Sharapova at New York runway shows last week sans-medals (and she does have a couple of gold ones), Sacramone was toting her team silver around with her at Fashion Week, making sure everyone saw it whether they wanted to or not. Now, it appears she’s carrying it around in her purse to dinner in L.A.
