Chari also returned to gymnastics in her 30s and competed a couple years as (I think) Level 10….one of my all-time favorite women gymnasts, what a remarkable career!

I thought I recognised that reverse planche from the gymnastics film “The Perfect Body”…. I checked, and Chari did the stunts for it – of course! FANTASTIC control.

I saw Chari when she was competing as a level 10 and she had a muscle on her leg that I had never seen before.

I was not expecting the xed legs on twist. Goes to show we expect superhuman feats . The routine was pretty cool.
