The average spectator doesn’t see gymnastics as a dangerous activity. After all, the events don’t represent harsh contact sports. Perhaps not, but gymnastics remains risky for all participants.
Spinning, jumping, twirling, and tumbling put gymnasts at injury risks. Earlier this year, a 9-year-old girl named Cherrish Remy almost succumbed to a potentially injurious mishap, which took place at a national Gymnastics competition in Nashville. Thankfully, her quick-thinking coach jumped into action. Specifically, he jumped into the fray to help the young girl’s jumping mishap. A video of the impressive catch has since made its rounds on the internet, with many impressed by the coach.
