Aly Raisman’s Parents Still Soaking in That Their Daughter Is Olympian After Lifelong Pursuit

Most parents don't sign their child up for gymnastics classes with the Olympics in mind.

But for Ricky and Lynn Raisman, a young beginning in the sport for their daughter, Aly, has spawned a trip to the Summer Games in London.

In a NESN.com interview, Ricky and Lynn admit that the Olympics weren't on their minds when Aly first started in the sport, but they've been enjoying the ride as she's continued to advance. They also talk about how they reacted when the announcement came that Aly was headed to London, as well as what it's like to watch their daughter perform before enthusiastic crowds.

See what the Raismans had to say in the video above.
