Why is it that..

A few notes about me and why I feel how I feel right now about the Olympic Team Results.

I live in Orlando, Florida…enough said.

I work as a PT with National/International gymnasts…enough said.

I was a product of mid-to late- 1970’s high-level girl’s gymnastics and was overtrained and overstressed…enough said.

It’s hard to go to public school, have multiple siblings, worry that your sport is costing your parents too much, have to babysit for money, travel to meets alone (with just your coach)…this was me in the 70’s and sounds familiar to gymnasts today…enough said.

WHY IS IT THAT…

Why is it that there are still coaches who push the gymnasts to the edge of their mental and physical tanks, but with no rhyme or reason?

Why?

Why do we still have so many overuse syndromes in the sport of gymnastics?

Why?

Why do we ignore pain because we feel that we have to for the sport?

Why?
