VIDEO: US gymnast's parents are dramatic spectators

Now, to be fair to the parents of American gymnast Aly Raisman, if there was a camera focused on us during particularly tense sporting moments, we'd probably look a little odd as well.

As they watch their daughter compete during the bars section of the women's gymnastics preliminary competition, their seats appear to transport them to the front of a terrifying rollercoaster ride.

Thankfully, their reactions were ultimately warranted as Raisman has advanced to the overall women's finals.
