Back again, first of two questions:

Post  alcazar on Tue Jan 20, 2009 5:47 am

OK, I'll be the first to admit I know nowt about gymnastics really, so for those that do, here's my first question:
On some pics of Shawn, (and other gymnasts), they have their toes strapped together. Not always the same ones, and not always at all.
So why do they do it? Injury support? Injury avoidance? More grip, say, on the beam? Owt else?

BTW: who else thinks Shawn even has pretty FEET? LOL Very Happy
Anyone know? :

-it's so their toes stay together on the beam so they don't catch on the edge of the beam. Especially when they do like a twirl on one foot.

Haha Me too. I used to take gymnastics when i was 3 but then we moved so I stopped. =[ Now i blame my mom for not putting me back in it because then I could be like Jonathan Horton and be hanging out with Shawn. One day i just went off on my mom about that. Lol

I felt bad afterwards. But it's totally true.
Honestly, you cant say, "but look! you turned out fine!" Because I could just go, "BUT IT"S SHAWN JOHNSON!!"

I think the dollar is going down but the pound is really struggling because all the banks here are close to collapse and the government is having to spend too much money to keep the afloat

You are correct, sir, and that is why I put in at least TWO things to show I was joking.
I bet I'd still have got a clout if there were any near enough Smile Isn't the internet wonderful.
