NEW YORK (CBS) -- Life is good for Olympic gymnastics champion Aly Raisman.

The six-time medalist got a big welcome party at the "Rally for Aly" in her hometown of Needham on Saturday, and on Sunday, she was in New York for the MTV Video Music Awards.

Raisman and teammates Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez, Madison Kocian posed on the red carpet before presenting an award to Beyoncé on stage.

The gymnasts seemed ecstatic as each got a hug from the music superstar.

Earlier in the weekend, Raisman was honored at Fenway Park, where she let Red Sox slugger David Ortiz try on some of her medals.

Gabby Douglas, the other member of "The Final Five," was unable to attend the VMAs because of a medical issue.
