Purely my brain going off on tangents and being curious so figured I'd post here. I kinda get how gymnasts get to be elite in the US, but are the requirements and skills the same in other countries? Like going elite in Japan or South Africa, the same as here? I remember reading about a gymnast in the US competing for another country and it was pretty controversial. Plus, we've been pretty dominant in the US, so it made me wonder if our requirements for reaching an elite level are harder than other countries.
