Thoughts on the Trampoline

I like to think that trampoline gymnasts are really just people who were ridiculously good at flipping on the trampoline as kids. I like to think that they all got there via situations like this:

So one day this kid is doing her normal flips and somebody comes by and says, You know that that is a real sport? Then she says, No way! Then he says, Way! Then she says, No Way! Then he says, Just watch the Olympics, they have all kinds of crazy stuff they call sports. Just think, you could win a gold medal! Then she says, No way! Then he says Way! So she goes and watches the TV and sure enough, it is a “real sport,” so she decides to keep practicing. Four years later she is flipping for America.

Yes. I like to think that this is how all trampoline gymnasts have come to be.

    Love it. I imagine this is pretty much how it occurs. 🙂
