I competed all-around at the provincial and national level back when I was a teenager. I quit after I tore an ankle ligament during my final competition back in 1984. Wished I was able to continue on, as it was bittersweet watching my fellow competitors in the 1988 Seoul Olympics.
I tried to do some gymnastics again a few years ago when I was 40 and although my brain could remember how to do all the moves, my body just couldn't respond like it used to for obvious reasons.
It was a definite challenge after all these years, but I tried and I had fun reminiscing in a way, but I think I'll just stick to watching both men's and women's gymnastics from here on out. The recent World Championships was great, and am glad that network TV took the time to air it
