The 2016 Rio Olympic games tells not only the stories of the Olympians themselves, but also of their families.

NBC Sports YouTube channel uploaded a video of Lynn and Rick Raisman, U.S.A. gymnast Aly Raismans parents, providing some great entertainment in the stands while their daughter performs, as the description below the video said.

Yesterday during the U.S.A. Womens Gymnastics teams qualifying round, 22-year-old gymnast Aly Raisman qualified for the all-around final. During her weakest event, the uneven bars, she kept her composure. On the other hand, her parents were in the stands wearing their emotions on their sleeves.

This isnt the first time Raismans parents have been spotlighted because of their squirmy reactions. In a 2012 USA Today interview about the London games, they said that although they were embarrassed by their reactions to their daughters routine, they thought the attention they received was pretty funny.

"I'm a little horrified right now," her father Rick said to USA Today after watching their reactions on film. "Oh my gosh!"

Raisman posted a picture of her parents on Instagram, with the caption, The best parents miss them so much!!! Cant wait to see them in a few days.
