Calling all gymnasts!

Hi, all!

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.

Stay flipped!

Gymnastics Prayer

Now I warm up for the meet
I pray my competition I can beat
And if I fall amidst the cheers
I pray I can hold my tears
And one more thing, success or not
I pray the creator of the beam be shot.


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.

So a gymnast walks into a vault…

“You can always tell a vault specialist by her thighs – poor child looks like an East German powerlifter who wandered into a midget ballet recital.”
