Action-Sam on IG forum posted an important photo. Here’s a partial screen grab.
See the entire photo.
Three of the best gymnasts in the world. One is “normal”, one is bow-legged, one is … Rebecca Bross. You might call her knock-kneed.
Read the entire thread – Rebecca Bross … feet on UB… no nasty comments
Obviously you can be a World Champion with bow legs (i.e. Valeri Liukin) or knock-knees like Rebecca, but it’s not nearly as artistic.
Click PLAY or watch Rebecca’s Bars on YouTube.
The fact that her heels are apart is not nearly as obvious from the side, the judge’s perspective.
