Local teenager Aly Raisman, from Needham, is competing in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. She is the captain of the women's gymnastics team (Go Aly!). And last night her parents, Rick and Lynn Raisman, were front and center watching their daughter compete on the uneven bars.
The parents were visibly agitated as they ducked and swayed with each flip and and jump their daughter completed. It looked more like they were riding a roller coaster. Video of their reaction spread across the Internet.The Boston Globe, in this article, discusses how the Raismans reacted in the stands and talks to other parents about how they feel watching their children perform or compete.
How hard is it for you to watch your child compete?
