Im so glad about yall...
Because youre lucky to practice my favorite sport.I love gymnastics since i saw it for the first time on tv,i was about 5 years old.But now im 17 years old,too old to train,i can barely do a fronthandsprind,and its difficult for me to do it... One of my dreams was to become a gym coach,but thats impossible for me,my life without gymnastics is ruin and useless.But to know some news and articles about it,it just brings me back to life! Im so glad that i fell in love with gymnastics!

That's too bad that you can't train or coach... glad you love the sport though. I'm 16 right now, a level 7, and know that I will almost definitely be done after my senior year of highschool, so that's kind of hard to deal with. I have however, been working on a replacement sport of pole vaulting. Just like the USAG motto: start here, go anywhere!

Why do you think you're too old to do gymnastics? Everyone doesn't start at 5 or 6 years old - there's a couple of examples at the Chalk Talk category, topic "how late is too late to start gym?": http://www.gymchat.com/messageboards/viewtopic.php?t=86 . The core fun part about gymnastics isn't the gold medals or the olympics or the competitions - although that can be fun too of course - it's the gymnastics. Maybe you could find a gymnastics club near you to start? You could go in the teens/adult classes, or maybe even in the rec. classes they have - so most of the kids will be years younger, but who cares? When you learn more gymnastics yourself, you will become an even better gymnastics instructor/coach.

Hi flor, Since you are 17 years old and under 18 years old which is an adult - if it's the same as where you are as in the USA - you should hurry up and find a gym near you that you could go to if you would really like to - cuz at least here in the USA it can get harder to go to a new gymnastics club when you are 18 and over for the gymnastics club's insurance reasons - is it the same over there? Some gymnastics clubs offer it and some don't, based on the insurance plan they have.
