Rick Raisman - It's dad AND mum on whom we can clearly stick a 'Bonkers' label here. It's Rick and Lynn, parents of USA Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman. Their manic, nerve-stricken shouting, gesticulation and bizarre body twisting in their seats made them semi-famous during London 2012. Having seen the footage, Aly's reaction was: "I didn't know they were that crazy when watching me!"
Sport's maddest dads
what do you think?
We were at a schoolboys moto cross event with my son who rode. One of the fathers was caught by the officials beating his son for not winning the previous race! He had been seen at other events doing the same and warned him, this time he was banned from all UK events, Unfortunately as his father drove him to events the son also stopped riding, and spoilt his enjoyment of competing.
