It takes years of practice and dedication to be an athlete. You practice until you can’t get it wrong, you dedicate years of your life to the sport you love. All it takes is one wrong move at the wrong time to destroy all the hard work. One step too far, one second too soon, one miscalculation and your whole world can be destroyed before your very eyes.

Ok, just to point to the fact that my two favorite gymnasts ever, that are Shawn Johnson and Jordyn Wieber, were introducted to USA Gymnastics Hall of Fames in the last 2 days. I’m really emotional. 

Are there any facebook groups about USA gymnastics?

I wonder if I was a gymnast would the gymnternet love or hate me? 

Things I don’t understand:

So… Why is Jordyn training her double double, double piked and even a double layout on floor if she doesn’t plan to compete this summer? To stay IN SHAPE? (She could just work out or run or do something not that risky of an injury) 
Why is she training an ENTIRE new skill on bars that could be named after her if she doesn’t plan to compete this summer? To stay in shape FOR COLLEGE? She doesn’t even plan to go there for at least one/two years (and, of course, she isn’t gonna compete there) so what IS the point?
Why did she hire a famous and busy coreographer to make her a NEW floor routine IF she doesn’t paln to compete this summer? WHY? I just don’t get it, really.
