Goodwill Towards Gymnasts: Aly and Vika

For the first time in a few weeks, I had sometime to peruse Tumblr. 

I came across this GIF of Aly Raisman and Viktoria Komova that filled my heart with glee and if the Grinch saw this , it would make his heart grow three times it's size. Aly is seen tapping Vika on the arm and Vika looks up and she is engulfed in a congratulatory embrace.

 It's no wonder Aly was named the team captain of the Fierce Five. She shows a genuine display of affection and goodwill. Vika seems get's a slight smile on her face just as Aly embraces her.

Hopefully, we will see the return of both of them in 2014.
