This Old Dog TEACHES The New Tricks!



The West Australian HPC gymnast who uploaded this states, "One of our coaches, Sergei, said 'Give me $10 and I'll do a triple back' [y'know, as you do]. What do you know, he did, with no warm up, no guards and he hasn't done gymnastics in over 20 years!"

Proving that you can take the man out of gymnastics but you can't take gymnastics outta the man, Sergei is (apparently) 41 and still able to crank out tricks like that.

Your move, Chusovitina...

Does anyone know why Shona morgan has been taken off the VIS scholarship list and replaced with rachel collister? Has she abruptly retired or something?

Hate to be a killjoy but

a) Please try and keep comments relevant to the post, otherwise we get bogged down in irrelevant speculation and gossip

b) You might be better suited asking this at the message board (see my links list) rather than in a comment here for the same reason given in point a).

Thanks very much.

no big deal,- triple back. especially if you did gymnastics twice a day during your school years...
even if you 41... on to the pit,- easy.
