Flippin’ Awesome

Hello, Welcome to Flippin' Awesome Thoughts . We started this blog because we wanted to show the sport of gymnastics and the effect that it has on the gymnastics world. Also wanted to revive the sport because it is dying and not getting as much attention as it should. On our blog we are going to interview several different people that are in the sport and get their opinions on the sport and their experience. We will also be uploading videos showing the love people have for the sport and them doing Flippin’ Awesome stuff.

May 18, 2021- Haden

This is Haden at the Region 4 competition he is on the parallel bars, the bars as said before in an earlier post is an event that consists of two wooden bars that are 11 feet long and positioned at hand height.  They score them by landing stance which is scored based upon how you land, a perfect landing score would be if your feet stick to the ground without moving, bent knees which is scored based on the angle your knees are bent a perfect score would be if your knees are 90 degrees, angles is scored if you don’t move a perfect score would be if you were at a 75 degree angle, steps. Throughout the competition they do various events and get scored individually on each event. In this event he scored a 11.9 which got him 12th place which is his personal best for that event.
