Two epic gymnastics fails… including my own #joblogs

What’s unnerving for most in this clip is not the two narrowly averted head plants but that the Italian gymnast, Sara Beradinelli, has the composure to get back up and do the the same move again with utter faith in the coach not reacting like an English (men’s!) cricketer.

I, however, totally get it. I used to be a gymnast and, unless you’re properly hurt, you get back up and try it again. See Exhibit A below…

I was ‘fine’, as in ‘gymnast fine’. I just had a big old bleeding scrape down my back but nothing that was going to stop me from finishing the competition.

What bothers me more about Sara’s epic double fail is that the move she was attempting was clearly not ready to compete. The coach finally agreed – a little late but let me tell you, it’s a rare occasion for your coach to crack before you do!
