That's okay dunno. I am so sorry about your past involvement. I apologize for offending anyone and I'm very sorry you were there. I didn't mean it as the "pushing skills" agenda which appears to be a big thing in higher gymnastics discussions these days (from what I've seen, something about increased difficulty scores, but I'm sure you know way more about it in your pinky than I could try to comprehend and express). I meant it more in a way that difficult skills (and all skills for that matter) have potentially serious consequences, these girls do them so effortlessly sometimes it's easy to forget. I have absolutely no background in higher levels of gymnastics so forgive me if it sounds ignorant to a trained ear. Obviously gymnastics is a very safe sport with certified coaches on safe equipment with proper practice and progression. I would never let my daughter participate if it wasn't. But sometimes horrible things happen. I just remembered hearing what happened to Julissa, bless her, (I wasn't involved in gymnastics at the time at all, and while my mom had competed herself and followed it closely it was strange I heard and registered it) and just feeling so awful. Watching Rebecca crash on vault for some reason brought back that memory of finding out what had happened to Julissa. I know they're completely different situations, probably far more different than I can ever imagine. Just for some reason it jumped to mind. Thank god Rebecca was okay in a basic sense. I mostly mean it as a concerned parent, no one ever wants to see their child get hurt, it's just a sickening thought. And every gymnast out there is someone's little girl. For whatever reason, coaches, sickness, injury, personal discomfort, or even just a bad day I think it's important to be aware of this and while there's a fine line between overcoming and pushing through and of course taking an unnecessary risk. It's something that can be said for many sports and activities too I'm sure. And once again I apologize if bringing up the comparison offended you, I really mean no disrespect through my ignorance.
