(WFLA) – In 2012 the parents of Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman garnered social media attention with their nervous antics. Cameras caught the two squirming, moving and making faces that parents everywhere could relate to.
Flash forward to 2016. Raisman staged a comeback and is once again representing Team USA. As she did in London during the 2012 games, Raisman qualified for the individual all-around competition.
Her parents, Lynn and Rick, are with the gymnast in Rio – again delighting the internet. Cameras captured them Sunday during their daughter’s bars routine. The bars are Raisman’s weakest apparatus. Watching her parents during the routine will surely earn the sympathy of other parents.
