Aly Raisman’s Parents: Let’s Enjoy Their Olympic Enthusiasm Again And Again

|

We’ve all heard (or know first-hand) that parents of athletes can be a little enthusiastic about their kids’ sports. Well, that point was definitely proven last night as U.S. gymnast Aly Raisman’s parents watched her compete on the uneven bars during the Olympics qualifying round. Their twisting and turning deserves a medal of its own. We were more nervous watching them than watching the girls on the floor! We are so glad that Aly didn’t catch her parents’ routine while she was on the bars, or else we’re sure she would have ended up laughing along with us. Although, this is probably not the first time her parents have been moving right along with her. One of our favorite parts was when her dad let off steam in the end with that laugh/scream. We were right there with him! (Also, who is the genius who miked them?)
