Do your remember Jonathan’s Horton’s performances at the Pro Gymnastics Challenge. This amazing stunt on the high bar was one of the highlights of the competition. It looks impossible, but he did it successfully. Unfortunately doing it in a regular gymnastics competition isn’t likely, for the strength and endurance to make it through a whole routine which includes these moves would be unbelievable, not to mention the danger of ruining the whole routine with a miss in catching the bar.
However, since Jonathan has been working to improve his gymnastics skills, we may see some fantastic performances from him at the upcoming national P&G Championships. If he does well there, he could be representing the USA at the gymnastics World Championships will take place in October, 2014 in China. He’s been out of competition for quite awhile due to a shoulder injury. But it’s possible he could make a strong come-back.
And the question in the back of everyone’s mind is, will Jonathan have what it takes to make it to his third Olympics in 2016? What do you think? Leave your comments below.
