P.S. Here is that videos I mentioned yesterday of me doing gymnastics, this was 2006, sorry about the sound, I taped them off my tv, haha. (I didn't get hurt in that last one, but its the only good video I have of that vault, I was the only one in the history of my school to do it...haha, of course I didn't usually fall)
