Little things like this are what make the Olympics such a wild, wonderful event every four years!
Team USA gymnast Aly Raisman is having an incredibly successful Olympic Games at Rio this year, but you’d never know it by looking at her mom and dad watching every event in the stands!
Rick and Lynn Raisman have gone viral simply because of their weird, fidgety reactions to their daughter’s flips, tumbles, turns, and jumps on the mat. Although this shouldn’t be too surprising considering they were just like this at the 2012 London Olympics!
Really, its AH-Mazing to see mom and dad quite literally live through the entire routine with every emotion on their faces, and in their bodies.
From cringing, to covering their eyes, to rolling around in their seats, Lynn and Rick have gone over the top in support of Aly! Even Olympic experience hasn’t made it easier for them!
But knowing how much they care about her, and how badly they want her to succeed, it’s actually a little cute.
Here, watch a clip of one of Aly’s all-around routines (below) to get an idea of what mom and dad are being put through:
Well… not for Rick and Lynn! Ch-ch-check out their real-time reactions (below)!!!
You can just FEEL the stress and anxiety through the screen, can’t you?!
We can’t even imagine what it’s like to be a parent at the Games this year!!
