Chatting With Recreational Gymnasts

Here’s a video of a couple of recreational gymnasts sharing a little of what it’s like to compete in gymnastics.

News Channel 12’s Jacob Kittilstad speak with a pair of sister-teammates – Anna and Alyse Bullock…

Shannon Miller is helping to promote the 2013 US National Championship this August.  She’s touring gyms and talking to gymnasts about the upcoming national championship and her experiences as an elite gymnast.

Miller was a commentator at the 2012 Olympics, and she was asked who her favorite current gymnast was. She picked Aly Raisman, the captain of the gold-medal winning “Fierce Five” USA women’s team, while also a gold medalist individually on the floor exercise and a bronze medalist on the balance beam.

“She’s just kind of underneath the radar,” Miller said. “She just came in and did the job, and she left with the most medals.”

It’s interesting that Miller picked as her favorite the gymnast whose story is so close to her own.  At least as far as 1992 is concerned.
