Gymnastics has been my favorite sport since watching the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games. Girls who were my shape and size doing amazing physical feats like splits that are beyond 180 degrees, triple somersaults in the air and flips on a four inch beam. Not only does it take incredible strength, concentration and more practice than most sports, but most of these girls aren’t even of age yet! These girls and women practically fly!
This awesome routine is from the finals of the 2010 Acrobatic Gymnastics World Championships in Wrocław, Poland. These three Ukrainian women placed third after Russia and Great Britain. I’ve seen lots of professional gymnastic routines, but none where the girls use each other to balance. Imagine the pure muscle required to balance two other human beings on your hands, legs and shoulders! I fall over just walking down the street!
At 2:27 I don’t even know how the girl doesn’t break her leg.
If you think acrobatics is a legit sport, then please spread the words and SHARE with your friends!
How is this physically possible?!
