Aly totally killed it Sunday, placing second in the women's individual all-around, but that didn't stop her parents Lynn and Rick from being nervous AF every time she competed.

Raisman's parents were likely particularly nervous because, this past June, Aly fell off the uneven bars during the US Secret Classic.
