Laura Vikmanis


Laura Vikmanis was a registered dietician in her late 30s whose husband left her for another woman. She was devastated. However, on a whim she tried out, at the age of 39, to become one of the Cincinnati Bengals’ cheerleaders. She made it to the finals on her first try, and the next year she made it on the squad. Currently, at the age of 42, she is the oldest cheerleader in the NFL. Ms. Vikmanis is soon to be the subject of a TV movie, which will no doubt help her support herself and her two daughters, aged 14 and 12. I wish her all the best, but I would dearly love to be a fly on the wall when she tells her daughters, “Do you really think you’re leaving the house dressed like that?”
