Raunchy Gymnastics Movie

March 15, 2016

You can tell from the trailer that it’s going to be on the raunchy side. It actually has an R rating – so apparently, they go even deeper into raunchy territory than you might expect.

And here’s a 20 minute Q&A from the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.

The Chinese Gymnastics Schools

March 10, 2016

I just watched a documentary about Chinese Gymnastics school. If you throw out the parts with the guy kicking the kid and the part with the other guy threatening to beat them with a cane, I’d have to say the next worst part was at the very end when a coach says a seven year old won’t be world champion because supposedly she is already too big. This girl just started training. If you know she’s too big, stop taking her parents’ money and send her home. Ditto for the poor kid with curved arms. Six years training, and his parents spending money on that training, and his career was doomed from the start because of his arms. Terrible.

A short clip about Dipa Karmakar. BBC news does not seem too impressed with her landing on the produnova. They shot it in such a way that you can’t even see it.
