Not looking at video yet, but I'm guessing it's the 40 year old soviet/something gymnast busting down the parallel bars...


yup.

There's a reason why that move isn't legal anymore.

I don't think it's because of that, however. Also, the bars are further apart now.

You're thinking of a different gymnast and different move

No, I was definitely talking about the "swing about the waist around the low bar" move she does... maybe it's not "illegal" now, but since the bars are further apart, it's much more difficult to pull off. You'd smack your knees or ankles instead of your waist.

It reminds me of throwing down the mic.

It's illegal to stand on the bars now.

Maybe this wouldn't have happened if she weren't so goddamn fat.
 
2013-03-04 01:55:20 PM
I thought it was going to be this.
 
2013-03-04 02:05:04 PM
God damn... practicing that 100 times a day must give you some bruised abs, I don't care how ripped you are.

hazeleyedwolff: It's illegal to stand on the bars now.


Well, yes, but I was talking about a "beat", I believe -- what she does for almost every move except the last/dismount.

lose some weight fatty ms' fatty
 
2013-03-04 02:28:42 PM
Possibly a little-known fact: She won the gold for that performance and dominated the 1975 World Cup.

\had a gf who was a gymnast. No, it's not true.

Ludmilla can dismount me any time

my Mom & Granma were both in the Slocals. i found out during wartime gymnastic troupes were often used to carry messages about as they visited and performed in different cities.
 
2013-03-04 03:16:57 PM

uberaverage: That was pretty badass.


Yeah.  That was like walking away and not looking back at an explosion badass.
 
2013-03-04 03:48:36 PM
That chick was ice cold.  The bars smashed behind her, and she never glanced that way.  Just like crushing one over the left field wall and turning to the dugout to flip your bat.

That was, like, some Exorcist shiat when she flew backwards from the low bar to the high bar.

What isn't? Curious minds and so on .. .

/the girl in the video has an amazing athletic body ... ahem.

Atomic Spunk: Maybe this wouldn't have happened if she weren't so goddamn fat.


yeah, shes a giant compared to gymnasts these days.  she must be in her 20s, and not her early teens.

when did kids start getting to be so good?
 
2013-03-04 11:29:34 PM
Nonreaction to loud noises and crap falling apart all around you?  That's Asperger's... or she's a badass...

The pommel horse, Jerry! The pommel horse!

She could probably crack walnuts between her butt cheeks.
 
2013-03-05 11:06:14 AM
I think this is the equivalent of the cool hero walking away from the explosions in an action flick without looking back.
 
2013-03-05 11:21:21 AM
It's as if her routine included her destroying the apparatus upon dismount to convey the message that no further competitors need be judged. She was the winner and that's all there was to it.
 
2013-03-05 03:05:22 PM
Well that's worth a bookmark.

Momentum is a hell of a thing. I wonder if you just wake up one day and are like, "Gee, I wonder if I spin fast enough, I can fly backwards and upwards about 6'. Nah, that's too vanilla, it needs a lead in backflip."
 
2013-03-06 07:07:05 PM
That was the gymnastics version of "Cool guys don't look at explosions".

Yeah I was thinking the same. Curious minds. While we await your explanation I shall retire to my bunk.
