You know what they say: If at first you don’t succeed at getting your friends to match you with an Olympic medalist, try to get her attention on social media… or something like that.
After getting together following a video Q&A, Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman and NFL tight end Colton Underwood are officially dating. The couple made their debut on Monday at the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year ceremony in New York City.

Raisman told People that she and Underwood have been dating since the MTV Video Music Awards, just over a week after Yahoo News published a video of the couple’s “meeting.”
During the video Q&A, Raisman watched a video of Underwood, who asked her to go out with him and their mutual friends, retired gymnast Shawn Johnson and her husband Andrew East, the next time she’s in the San Francisco area.
“Did Shawn put you up to this?” Raisman asked before watching the video. “They’ve actually told me about him before, he’s very cute… Yeah, I would go on a date with him.”
