At this point, you probably already know that Aly Raisman claimed silver in the individual all-around competition on Thursday. And of course, we couldn’t be happier about this, because she definitely deserves all of the accolades. Her teammates agree, considering they wrote her the sweetest note ever. Squad goals for the win.
Raisman’s teammates 16-year-old Laurie Hernandez and uneven bars champion Madison Kocian wrote an extremely heartfelt letter to their “Mama Aly.” Their note reads:
“Aly, We couldn’t be any happier for you! All your hard work is paying off, and now you’re an Olympic AA Silver Medalist!! We’ve looked up to you from the beginning of our elite careers and you’ve inspired us in so many ways! We’re so thankful to have you cheering us on, and helping us through this Olympic journey! We love you Mama Aly. Love, Maddie and Laurie.”
Raisman, of course, posted a photo of the note on her Instagram:
Mazel tov to Raisman and her team! This short note reminds us that a few kind words can really put a smile on someone’s face–and that it’s always important to make those around you feel truly appreciated.
