The Balance Beam Situation

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama

Keeping Up with the Cool GIFs – Week 3

This week...

Savannah Tharp revolutionized bootography


Archimedes Burgess saluted the principle of center of gravity


And Kara Houdini made a front double full appear as if by magic


Meanwhile, Derrian nearly walked out of bounds


But her brother pointed the way back in line


We tried to hear Suni’s new floor routine


Morgan Hurd did a savage impression of everyone else’s twisting ring positions


And this is the most running anyone should ever do at one time


7 of the top 10 teams set or matched a season low this week


As everyone saw their beam rotations coming like


To receive credit, a split element must show 180 teammates’ heads


And it’s the little kicks that keep you on the beam


UCLA is wearing hair ribbons now and Miss Val was like


Then Val turned around and asked who made that joke and I was like


They said “back tuck dismount,” but Helen Hu heard “Pak tuck dismount”


They said “aerial to scale,” and Jordan Chiles said, you mean this?


They said “do a cartwheel,” and Cristal Isa said no


And they said “stay in bounds,” and Madi Dagen said everything
