Jordyn Wieber's mother, Rita, returned to DeWitt Thursday, after being in London for the 2012 Olympics.

News 10 caught up with Rita Wieber at the Capital Region International Airport.

She thanked mid-Michigan for its support as well as donations made that helped the family travel to London to watch Jordyn compete.

Wieber says she saw Jordyn Wednesday in London and that it was strange to see her wearing a boot, as Jordyn hasn't worn a boot ever in her gymnastics career. Jordyn Wieber is dealing with a shin injury.

Rita Wieber says the trip was full of ups and downs, that it was a "ride" and that she's happy with Jordyn's performance.

The mother and daughter will reunite in New York City next week when Jorydn makes some appearances. Jordyn returns to mid-Michigan late next week.
