Tear-Jerking Ad Shows That Even Olympic Super Athletes Need Their Moms' Love, Too

A moving reminder that our moms are always there for us.

Despite their near-superhuman sporting feats, professional athletes are just like us mortals in that sometimes, their greatest strengths are drawn from the comfort of family. 

Known for its tear-jerking campaigns focusing on moms, longtime Olympics sponsor Procter & Gamble (P&G) released a new, deeply moving ad about Olympic athletes just in time for Mother's Day.

The consumer goods company featured actors playing Olympians from different countries recalling moments in their lives when their moms were there to give them strength — in a car accident, confronting bullies, or during a bout of wild plane turbulence.

The ad serves as a timely reminder that no matter how far you go in life, mom will always be there. Get your tissues ready, folks.
