For average human beings, anything that a gymnast does is spellbinding. From cartwheels to handsprings, gymnasts possess excellent agility, strength, and flexibility. So much so that they are capable of making a stumble on the beam look effortless. Recently, a young gymnast made a jaw-dropping save on a beam that made the sports world go berserk.
A few weeks ago, a gymnastics Instagram page named Tricks and Flipz shared a video of a gymnast performing tricks on a beam. Just when she was about to fall, she made the most beautiful save that earned her great appreciation from the netizens.
Here’s how the young gymnast made the most effortless save
In the short clip uploaded by the Instagram page, the young gymnast is seen performing at a fully packed stadium with the audience curiously watching her. As she starts performing, the gymnast does three magnificent handsprings during the first few seconds of the video.

However, as she lands on the beam after the third handspring, she experiences an unexpected stumble. Just when it seemed she was about to fall off the beam and lose points, the skilled gymnast made the best use of her flexibility.
With great presence of mind, she rested her palms on the beam while her lower body was on the upside. Nevertheless, she made her legs do a 180-degree split that restored her balance on the beam. Eventually, she landed her legs on the wooden plank and gracefully stood up like it was a part of her fantastic gymnastics routine. Genius!
