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.
