Don't even get me started on the disgusting, exploitive, unnatural and dangerous world of "women's" gymnastics. At least they've moved the age limit up over time from 14 to 16, but verification is something of a joke, and I refuse to consider any "sport" where being obviously post-adolescent means you're ready for retirement from top level competition to be a "women's" event. They should just rename it "overly-coached-small-girls-who-are-doing-permanent-damage-to-their-bodies gymnastics".

That's exactly why I only let my girls do gymnastics for fun. My eldest wanted to get more involved and start competing and I said no. I am not willing to watch her go through all they go through.
