Proud dad Al Roker raves about his son’s Special Olympics swim meet wins


This Father’s Day was one to remember for Al Roker!

While he and his family feasted on barbecue Sunday, the festivities actually kicked off the day before the official holiday — when TODAY’s weatherman-and-more took on the role of proud pop as he watched his 16-year-old son swim to success.

“Nick competed, for the first time, at the statewide Special Olympics in New York,” he explained during the 3rd hour of TODAY Monday. “He won a gold medal in the 25-yard butterfly and a gold medal in the 50-yard (freestyle).”

That’s right — two gold medals on the first try.
