I could do a forward flip, but not backward. The gym teacher had her ‘student spotters’ assist me. Guess what? I did a back dive on the trampoline. I still have neck problems!

that last picture brings back a PAINFUL memory :(

I think I spotted Blanka on the arm of Jumpin’ Jack Flash!

“…lining up with their pickup lines when she hits the ground.”

Seems like Ariane Friedrich is in quite a big green pickle. Could it be (Blanka) Vlasic’s?

Is this a new way to make athletics more exciting for viewers, or merely part of the selection process for the German team?

Is quite the athletic star
When she’s upside down
And has no time to frown
You’d be amazed at how many suitors there are

Blanka’s been pouting
because there’s been no romancing,
Her spirits are flat,
or is that just qat?

those jowls need deflating.

Women in high jump
Talk about head over heels
Proposals abound
