London Olympics: Aly Raisman's parents steal the show [Video]

July 30, 2012|By Chuck Schilken

And then there was all that, uh, vocal support coming mainly from Raisman's mother. For those of you keeping score at home, here's how I tallied it:

"Come on!" - 10 times;

"Let's go!" - 7 times;

"Catch (it)!" - 4 times;

"Go!" - 4 times;

"Stick it!" - 2 times;

"(Some unintelligible phrase)!" - 2 times;

"Nice!"- 1 time each.

There was also an emphatic "Yeah!" from both parents in unison after their daughter actually did stick it (her landing).

Mom and Dad looked exhausted but proud after that routine. With any luck, all three Raismans will be well-rested and on top of their games for Thursday's medal round.
