NYC public school parent says:

That was an interesting article. The subject of banned moves in gymnastics is really complicated. When I was a kid, I was glued to Olga Korbut’s Olympic routines when she did a backflip on the bars — it’s now banned and when I watch that (and some other banned moves) I feel stressed even when I know they land them safely. It’s a tough call because of course elite athletes want to push themselves to the limit but the more points you get, the more athletes are incentivized to do it. There are moves banned in male gymnastics, too, although I’m not sure if the men get more value added points for some “not banned but dangerous” vaults than others.

Unfortunately, it’s only after someone gets seriously injured or paralyzed or worse that people say “why didn’t they ban that instead of incentivizing it by awarding so many points?”

All I can say is that when I watch the top level gymnastics or high diving or ski jumping I am glad I’m not the parent of an elite athlete!

There’s a fascinating video of 13 year old skier Kai Jones skiing off cliffs — intentionally! — he is truly amazing! But some part of me says — you’re good enough, please stop pushing it now before you really get hurt! How do you know when you pushed the boundaries too much? With some sports, it can be when you really hurt yourself.
