Gymnasts make what they do look easy, even when in fact what they do defies the odds every single day.
In a recent scare, a gymnastics coach used years of expertise to save an 11-year-old from experiencing what could have been a life-threatening slip up.
As captured on video, the coach catches a female student mid-air seconds before she almost crashed head-first into the mat. Always reassuring to know your coach literally has your back.
The life-saving move occurred during a warm-up at the Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Ontario Championships, where the gymnast was prating her routine on the uneven bars.
