    Link: Gymnastics Ownage Montage - Montage of the falls at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney. Possibly the most falls in any Olympics?

    If you look closely you can occasionally see the trainers wishing for death as their prize competitor bites the dust

    Gymnastics are my favorite part of the Olympics. Watching 12 year olds that are more ripped than my P.E. teacher fly through the air, bash their heads on beams, and spring off of polls.

    God I love the Olympics.

    Oh, Oh! I know something that hasn`t been mentioned on IAB for once!

    *Clears throat*

    Okay, so the reason that so many of the vaults ended in failure was the springboard itself. The first, like, 10 vaults were so bad, that they finally investigated the board and, lo and behold, it was off by something like 3cm. But, they had such precise muscle memory that it was screwing them over big time.

    I`ll try to find it.

    This is why I never did gymnastics.

    With my luck, I`d do one of those fancy springboard flips and break my neck and die.

    Does someone know what this song is called? I know the style and such, but I really like this specific one and haven`t heard it before.

    The gymnastics are my favorite olympic sport to watch! Even the fails can look cool. :P

    Ah, Olympic gymnastics- The only time it`s socially acceptable to watch 14-year-old girls in tight clothing flip and twist every which way.

    When they`re over, I`ll have to go back to being a pedophile.

    Yeow, most of those look painful, although it`s difficult to call some of them "ownage".

    But Brian Meeker`s epic vault-to-the-chest collision, that was pure ownage right there, even though I believe it wasn`t during an Olympic Games.

    My ex was a hardcore gymnast, she could do alot of these things, maybe to a lesser extent, very very very flexible too.

    Too bad it took me 11 months to figure out that she wasn`t only a gymnast, but, she was also a psycho too!

    It`s because the equipment was off that year. Some of the girls got to re-do their stuff, others did not, unfortunately. The vault was not the right height, and many gymnasts complained that the floor material was more firm than usual. With so many falls, I believe them- the world`s best gymnasts don`t just make that many mistakes for no reason.

    gymanstics is a crazy hard sport and you`re going to have a couple falls here and there
    (i`ve already seen them and it`s only two days into the olympics)
    but i can`t believe there were so many here
