Yesterday we told about American gymnast McKayla Maroney and her jaw-dropping vault during the team all-around competition at the 2012 Summer Olympics. It was so good that it literally left the judges flabbergasted, and yet they didn’t award it a perfect score. Of course, losing a few tenths of a point didn’t hurt the USA gymnastics team, who won the team competition in a walk, but it sure made a lot of people think WTF?
But I think the problem is obvious. Those judges just haven’t seen enough bad gymnastics to the know the really good stuff when they see it. So I decided to help them out by doing a list of 20 awesome gymnastics fail GIFs. The Olympic gymastics judges can study these before they hand out any more medals so they don’t blow any more calls like they did with McKayla Maroney.
Also, I figured readers at large (that’s you) would probably find these amusing, too. So have a look.
