I’ve always enjoyed watching gymnastics, but I had not realized there are so many different forms of the sport. This video opened my eyes to Acrobatic Gymnastics, a sport that combines elements acrobatic moves, dance and tumbling between a group of gymnasts.
The person who posted this video says that Acrobatic Gymnastics is judged on three categories: difficulty, execution, and artistry. This trio from Russia certainly demonstrate the sport at its best.
There’s amazing confidence and trust between the trio and my jaw dropped watching some of their moves; there’s certainly no doubt as to why they placed 1st in this competition in the World Championships!
Note: the video below may appear blank but it DOES work. Be sure to press play!
