The “Professional Gymnastics Challenge” aired May 20-22nd. This is basically like the game of “Horse” in basketball, but with gymnastics, and some of the best gymnasts in the world. When you watch a gymnastics competition the gymnasts have to follow certain structures for their routines and include specific skill categories. Additionally they have to be able to do these skills consistently enough to risk performing them in their routines where a fall pretty much eliminates them from the competition. The PCG allows gymnasts to be more free, and isolates the competition to individual skills. This allows viewers to see some unique skills that they wouldn’t otherwise ever get to view.
The PCG will re-air on June 9th from 12:30pm-3:30pm on ESPN2. Tune in if you want to see a fun lighthearted competition.
