Final Moment Candids
This Side by Side reaction of Aly Raisman and her parents during her final moment of the competition will bring tears to your eyes! What a beautiful moment.
My parents and brother have been with me every single step of the way. They've felt every emotion I've had. They couldn't have been more supportive and loving. This side by side reaction to my final moment on the floor when I new it'd be enough to get an AA medal for the first time just proves everything. I love them so much. Is now an okay time to say I feel bad for putting them through so much stress? At least they can breathe a little…. Well until the floor final Tuesday 😉
