After finishing her second Olympics leaving Rio with three new medals, to add to the three she won in 2012, Jewish gymnast Aly Raisman is ready to date.

At least that is what she told NFL Oakland Raiders tight end Colton Underwood. The football player asked her out over video while she was interviewing with Yahoo! Sports, according to Uproxx news.

Underwood congratulated Raisman on her success in Brazil before suggesting a possible double date with fellow gymnast Shawn Johnson and her husband, Andrew East, who happens to be Underwood's teammate.

It turns out Underwood's video worked. Raisman stated that the football player is cute and said she would be interested in a date.

The gymnast also tweeted a reference to the football player's romantic gesture, stating that she looks forward to meeting him.
