Being an Olympic athlete is hard -- imagine how hard it is to be an athlete's parent? America was introduced to the parents of U.S. gymnast Aly Raisman on Sunday night, and their wild reactions to their daughter's routine won over the hearts of millions across the land. It also had the side effect, according to NESN Nation's Dan Duquette, of imploring athletes everywhere to now step up their reaction game. See more in the video above.

  • Gosh just watching them on Tv makes me wonder how they treat her on a every day basis.
  • I have been there and done that so watching them brought back many nail biting, body in time with the routine,....."just lean a little more this way, and STICK IT (or LAND IT, with my skating daughter). I had 3 in gymnastics and 1 in skating competitions, and I would tie myself in knots trying to do those routines. Ha Ha, like I said, it brought back so many memories. I love it, I love it all.
