Aly Raisman's Parents Steal Show At Women's Gymnastics

The pressure and stress of being an Olympian can be daunting. Dedicating your entire life to not just one sport, but to one moment, to one chance to shine on the biggest stage imaginable, with millions of eyes on you as you attempt to achieve perfection against the world's best competitors, is enough to make even the most experienced athletes nervous.

But it's nothing compared to what the parents go through, as we saw when U.S. gymnast Aly Raisman's mom and dad absolutely stole the show Sunday night.

Aly Raisman, along with Gabby Douglas, is one of the two Americans who advanced to the women's gymnastics all-around competition (eliminating teammate and defending world champion Jordyn Wieber in the process).

So if this is how Raisman's parents are when she's having the night of her life, I can't imagine what shape they'll be in if she ever stumbles, or slips off the beam.

The women's team final is Tuesday night. Good luck, Aly's parents.
