I have always loved climbing on things. When I was little my sister and I were always climbing walls and trees. We were out at the Raider’s Stadium and I couldn’t resist. This was a pretty narrow wall. It was a little bigger than width of a balance beam. I kept thinking how in the world do girls nail those performances on that 4 inch platform. It’s mind boggling. Gymnastics was my favorite sport when I was young. I went nuts for the Magnificent Seven when they won the Olympics in 1996. I was obsessed with gymnastics. Unfortunately I only learned very basic gymnastics. I used to get so mad at my mom that she let me quit when I was little. Instead I went into dance and cheerleading. I will always be amazed by what gymnasts do. It’s quite a feat. Talk about using the Force!! Gymnasts use their Jedi skills for real.
