Aly Raisman surely wasn’t expected to capture the first spot of the US Women’s Olympic gymnastics competing for the all-around title, but she did. While America was watching the gymnast come to life, they also got a glimpse of her two biggest supporters on the sideline as he mom and dad watched intently. The Sunday night competition had primetime coverage and the moment the parents were seen, millions thought it was humorous, but also understood exactly why they were so wrapped up in their daughter’s performance.
Apparently, the teenager still loves her parents even after the spectacle has gone viral. Millions of folks have seen Rasiman’s perfect performance and her parent’s responses. Yet, she still loves them both.
“I love my parents,” tweeted out Aly Raisman from her official Twitter account on Sunday night after the video went viral. The chance to show how much appreciation she had for her parents and their sacrifice was obvious in the four words.
Of course there will be those fans who might want to mock the Raisman’s response to their daughter and that’s cool too as it was funny. Just remember who has the top spot for the team and know she is laughing too.
