This is a video of a spotter of the highest caliber sliding a mat under a gymnast who missed his mark by a longshot and is about to take a hard fall onto the floor. Granted the floors are already padded, but still, that was about to really suck. Possibly all its meals through a straw for a while. There’s no doubt in my mind if this were the spotting Olympics this man would be on the podium alone with all three medals. Somebody call Wheaties, I’ve got a cereal box cover for them.
Thanks to my dad, who agrees always have a spotter.
