I love this fabulous infographic sent to me by Aries Apparel that highlights nine amazing female athletes who accomplished more as teenagers than most of us will in a lifetime. Featured athletes include gymnasts Mary Lou Retton, Nadia Comaneci, and Gabby Douglas; golfer Michelle Wie; tennis players Maria Sharapova and Martina Hingis; snowboarder Elena Hight; figure skater Kimmie Meissner; and swimmer Missy Franklin. Enjoy!
Who is your favorite? I’m going to have to go with Missy Franklin – such a classy young lady with a very bright future.
Gymnasts are creative and can do pretty amazing things with their strength and flexibility! In my 25+ years of coaching, I saw my gymnasts do some crazy creative things and I have heard even more stories, but what Gabby Douglas does in this Nike Free commercial is definitely up there on the creativity list!
What do you think? Is that even possible?
Whether Gabby could really open the door with her foot through the cat door while in her splits is possible or not, I got a giggle out of the commercial – which is what everyone needs on a Friday!
