Yesterday evening a looked at my twitter mentions and read “Why isn't this in the Olympics?!” with a link to the following video:
Why isn’t this in the Olympics? Probably something about the IOC not allowing any more gymnasts (of any kind, Artistic, Rhythmic or otherwise) to join the Olympics… SHOULD it be an Olympic Sport? Absolutely.
Currently, the IOC considers Trampoline an Olympic Sport, but doesn’t include Tumbling.
I will tell you, this stuff is super impressive. Former US National Team Member Kiara Nowlin has been recorded performing as many as 12 standing fulls in a row on a regulation floor.
All in all, Artistic Gymnastics will always be my number one, but there’s something phenomenal about T&T that makes me want to keep my eyes glued to the screen.
