Every time the summer Olympics roll around, I look forward to watching one event in particular: women’s gymnastics. When I was young I dreamed of becoming an Olympic gymnast, and I participated in competitive gymnastics for five years. When I quit at 12 years old, it was one of the hardest decisions of my life at the time.
And even though I never earned an Olympic gold, thanks to my gymnastics training, I gained plenty of important lessons that I’ve carried with me throughout my not-so-athletic career. Check out the valuable lessons you can learn from this well-loved Olympic sport.
