"This sport is very opinionated, so people have no problem telling you 'that leotard doesn't look good on you,'" Sacramone told Romper. "As a young girl it's hard because you're taking that criticism personally. I think it affected me for a long time."

She said she didn't start appreciating her body more until she retired from the sport in 2013.

Now, she's working with former Team USA teammate Samantha Peszek on an Instagram project called 'The Gympire.'
