julie warshawHow can you not be impressed with gymnastics? Children sacrificing a lifetime of health for the possibility of a few minutes’ Primetime Olympic spotlight and first-place bragging rights. Or second-place. Or no place. Having fared miserably in toddler-tumbling, my acrobatic future was sealed by preschool. I find the willingness of these kids to fling themselves through the air, hoping to “stick the landing” and resolving to take whatever transpires should they not, ovation-worthy. That being said, I’ve noticed that the sport of gymnastics is pretty much comprised of neat-o tricks and gregarious arm-flourishes. It’s like, “Hey, I’m going to do back-flips sandwiched between impressions of Vanna White.”
