I never get how gymnastics athletes can have a body so flexible that it looks totally unreal to me. Seriously, they can bend and twist their body in the weirdest way possible. Moreover, they can move as if they had no weight, much like a feather. I really can't tell what they're going through with each of their training session. Does the coach purposely bend them in all directions like a rubber doll? Man, that gives me the creeps. Anywa, I'm glad, though, that United States is getting better at Gymnastics. We can finally catch up with China after so many years staying behind them. Today, it's not only Chinese gymnastics athletes that can perform crazy stunt on the mats.

Anyway, if you're trying to motivate your little daughter, or maybe you boy to be more serious on her gymnastics training, you may wan to get these gymnastics coloring pages. In terms of difficulty, most of these gymnastics coloring pages are appropriate for young children. They're easy enough to color and feature many different images of popular moves in gymnastics. There is that awesome perfect leg split, the one where the athlete swing forward and backward using two rings, and the one with hula hoop and ribbon. These gymnastics may be printed for free but be sure remember to keep them for personal and educational purpose only.

Fun Facts about Gymnastics
