Think you can swing? Try this

This was my probably my best event in gymnastics and my second favorite( to parallel bars). Look how much the pommels resemble kb handles.



Course this is some crazy shit too. Man gymnastics was great fun.

Very nice. The barn the Haam brothers train(ed) in is about 2 miles away from my house.

Sweet. Reminded me of a couple of female gymnasts that used to mount the beam with Thomas flairs. Leah Homma is the first one that comes to mind (late 80s/early 90s).

I competed against Kurt thomas(who invented the flairs) in high school. I couldnt beleive it the first time I saw him do it!Never learned them unfortunately. circles are way cool to do though. I could do my entire side horse routine on the floor(minus the scissors,of course).
