When the summer Olympics roll around every four years, people from all over the world demonstrate just how much they enjoy gymnastics. Believe it or not, it’s actually one of the most popular summer sports!
Of course, when the news coverage moves on, most of us forget how much we love the mesmerizing routines, but we’re beginning to realize that we’re doing ourselves a disservice by not keeping up. Not only are talented athletes appearing all the time, but fresh techniques and styles are too. We’ve found the perfect video to prove it!
Unlike the traditional approach, styles like rhythmic gymnastics encourage team performances. So instead of being awed by an individual, you can be stunned by several people showing off the best parts of gymnastics and dance.
Not to mention, since any level of tumbling is impressive to those of us who have never done it, seeing multiple athletes pull off complicated moves in perfect synchronization is pretty mind-blowing.
If you still have doubts, just check out a video of a Japanese high school’s men’s gymnastics team. These six performers manage to mimic each other perfectly throughout their three-minute piece.
No matter how closely you watch, if you’re anything like us, you won’t be able to find a single mistake!
These gifted teens leap, flip, and contort their bodies in the most fascinating ways, all while making it look effortless. And they’re still in high school! We wish we were that talented.
It’s no wonder so many people tune in to watch gymnastics during the Olympics. Videos like this one just prove how much talent we’re missing in the time between.
Check out the incredible performance in the video below, and be sure to share it with your friends!
