    For Parents L10 gymnast (The Reality Of College Gymnastics)

    That is frustrating. Especially considering how talented your gymnast is. But yes, the media will likely talk more about the Olympic champion as opposed to the other athletes on the team. I will say, the gymnastics media I read and listen to for sure talked about your kid too.

    For Parents Moving skills from strap bar to real bar?
