After dominating in the Rio Olympics and taking home a gold and two silver medals, Aly Raisman might have some more time to think about dating.
The 22-year-old gymnast got a sweet date invite from Oakland Raider player Colton Underwood while doing a video segment with Yahoo Sports about how to date her. The NFL tight end sent a video asking if she’d like to go out with him next time she’s in San Jose, California.
The two already have mutual friends since Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson is married to Raiders player Andrew East. Raisman said, “Shawn and Nastia [Liukin] fight over who’s going to find me a boyfriend first.”
In the clip, Underwood, 24, who’s clad in his Raiders gear, tells Raisman he’s proud of her accomplishments. “Just want to congratulate you on all your success in the competitions and representing the U.S.A. over there. I know I’ve been following along. My roommates, my teammates, everybody here is super proud of you,” Underwood says in the clip. “You know, if you’re ever in San Jose and want to go on a double date with me and Andrew and Shawn, let me know.”
Raisman then admits that she knows who Underwood is and agreed to the proposed plan. “They’ve told me about him before. He’s very cute,” she said with a huge smile. “I would go on a date with him.”
After accepting the date invitation, the pair adorably exchanged messages on Twitter. Raisman wrote, “@Colt3FIVE thanks for the sweet video…. Looking forward to meeting you :).” The NFL player replied, “Anytime! Looking forward to meeting you too. Safe travels back, see you soon!”
Next up, the Final Five are hitting the road for the 36-city Kellogg’s Tour of Gymnastics. The tour stops in San Jose Sunday, September 18, so it may just be the perfect time for the two to go out!
