During a preschool class:
Me: “Can I have you put your toes on the purple line?” (We have colored lines adhered with velcro to the floor.)
Child: looks aghast; starts to tug at his shirt.
“You want ALL of our clothes on the purple line?”
All Staff, unanimously: “TOES!!!”
A major part of this blog is the sharing of crazy stories that a non-gymnast would never hear.
That’s where you come in.
Like any gymnast, I have a lot of strange, interesting tales to tell about our insane sport, but I only have so many.
If you enjoy reading our posts here, and think you have a story you’d like to share, please email me at < gotchalk10 at gmail > I’d love to hear your tales and share them with world.
A gymnast walks into a bar. She gets a two point deduction, a concussion, and ruins her chances of medaling.
Try and find one gymnast who hasn’t had at least one MRI, had his or her feet in a boot at least twice or won’t have back problems for the rest of his or her life. You won’t. Also for fun try and find a gymnast that will actually admit he or she is injured, again, you’ll have no luck.
