Beam – Jacki Bender

Amanda Turner and others on the Gymnastics – A Golden Era Facebook page have a thread discussing the most flexible Artistic gymnasts ever.

Amanda named Canadian Jacki Bender. I’d agree. No other Artistic gymnast ever had this much active flexibility control.

____ original post from Aug 2010:

This video was taken at a clinic at (one of my former clubs), Can-Am in Saskatoon. It was the early 1990s. Her handstand coach was Mr. B (Vladimir Bereschnoy), an “acrosport” specialist. The clinician at this event was Yuval Ayalon.

She has the perfect name – Jacki Bender.

Clearly Jacki had the skills of an Acrobatic gymnast. … We should look for Beam specialists in future with this skill set.
