Coach Catches Gymnast Not Once, But Twice [VIDEO]
Watching gymnastics has always been fun for me, especially during the Olympics. They make flipping around on bars seem completely effortless. Before you make it to the Olympics, though, you might not be as stable on the uneven bars.
Sara Berardinelli is lucky her coach was right there waiting with open arms in case she slipped -- which she did on two occasions in this video.
Berardinelli is at the Finals of the L'International Gymnix 2015.
What gets me is that both near-falls look like they could have ended her career or even her life! She was getting ready to dive head-first into the mat. Sure, it's padded, but the body isn't mean to contort that way on impact.
Thanks to her coach, though, she lives to flip another day.
