With the Rio Olympic Games underway, families of the Olympians are watching them compete at the highest level of their sports careers and the 'Future Olympians' ad by Fatherly reminds of the beginning of that journey.
The ad features young children who may be part of the 2032 Olympic team. These future Olympians are prodigies at their sports, including gymnastics, boxing and swimming. While the athletic feats of the toddlers and children are quite impressive, the message driving the ad is that one day they will transition from future Olympians to Olympians with the support of their parents.
The adorable ad brings to mind the well-recognized Olympic parents and families like Michael Phelp's mom proudly cheering him on, Aly Raisman's parents nervously watching her perform and Adam Peaty's proud Nan cheering him on by Twitter.
