The most underrated athletes...gymnasts.

So, it's Olympic time again, which for me just means it's time for the worlds most incredible athletes to take the stage and wow us with their physical abilities. From the boxers to the ball players to the runners, no one, and I do mean NO ONE is as impressive as the gymnasts. I know some of you are probably like, "Gymnasts? Gymnastics aint even a sport!" blah blah blah. Right. Let me break this down.

1. Ever walk on a balance beam? Yeah? Well have you ever done a no-hand back flip twist on one?

2. You ever jump from one bar to the next when you were kid on the playground? Still got the scar don't you?

3. You ever stand still, then jump straight into the air into a forward flip and land in a split, then come up and jump right into a back flip, the whole time doing ballet?

There are no athletes that are as strong, as agile, or as graceful as gymnasts. It's just the truth. I mean, these five foot 15 year olds can outrun you, out tackle you, and most likely dunk a basbetball. And to top it all off, I dare you to try to fight one. WRAP!

Show they gymnasts some love, and stop faking like gymnastics aint the most amazing thing you've ever seen. Yeah...I said it.
