Gymnasts are tough. But sometimes they still cry. Why? Because of pain. This video shows some painful landings and the tears of a few gymnasts. It’s not easy to watch, but it’s the reality of the sport that sometimes people get hurt.
When accidents like these happen, it can be a painful process of healing, physical therapy, getting back in shape, and resuming training. Slips and falls have sidelined some of gymnastics’ greats. As we mentioned lately, Elizabeth Price and John Orozco are recovering from injuries and trying to get ready for the US National Championship which will take place this summer.
