The Gymnast

written by: Sofia Kioroglou

 

Running
          jumping,
               tumbling,
                    somersaulting,
                         flipping and
                                    balancing.

Yes, I can do them all. My supreme performance on the rings has my mum fumbling for words. In my dreams, I am executing a challenging routine at the horizontal bar when you suddenly interrupt my stunt with your yelling voice. I don’t blame you. You just didn’t know I was working hard to win the gold medal on Sunday.
