Raiders player lands a date with Olympic gymnast Raisman

Updated: 

United States gymnast Aly Raisman took home a gold and two silver medals after her great performance in the Rio Olympics, and when she came home, she got a date request.

Oakland Raiders tight end Colton Underwood sent a video to Raisman congratulating her for her success and asked if she would fancy going on a date.

The evening would be a double date with Underwood and Raisman along with Raiders long snapper Andrew East and 2008 gold medallist Shawn Johnson, who are married.

Raisman, who is friends with Johnson, said the former American gymnast has told her about Underwood before, and she is willing to give him a chance.

Raisman and the other member of the USA Olympic gymnastics team will be in San Jose on September 18 on their champions tour, so a date could be on the cards very soon.
