 (ABC )

On “Dancing With the Stars,” gold medal gymnast Aly Raisman dedicated her dance to Boston victims dealing with Monday’s tragic explosions.

The Boston native nailed her samba and so far has the highest scores in the competition.

“Dedicating my performance tonight to everyone back home in Boston & anyone affected by this horrible tragedy… Love you all,” she posted on her Twitter account.

Raisman also expressed via the social media site how she was “feeling so sick,” but she felt worse she could not do more to help the victims of the tragedy in her hometown.

“Wish I could do something to help everyone in Boston! Things need to change, so disturbing,” she wrote.

The Olympic gymnast took over the DWTS ballroom with her partner Mark Ballas and performed a side-by-side samba with pros Tony Dovolani and Witney Carson.

Raisman earned a score of 25 (out of 30) for her dance.

Judge Carrie Ann Inaba was delighted with Raisman, who although got called out on a few mistakes on the dance floor, nailed the overall routine.

“I love seeing you bring out your sex kitten because that is what dancing is—a very sexy thing,” Inaba said.
