Friendly reminder that He Kexin can vault
An amazing HERO’s special about Kohei’s training in Australia. He has regained his love and motivation for gymnastics after his injury and calls himself “a damned gymnastics idiot.” He is also training the Bretschneider and was very frustrated that he couldn’t catch one on camera. His main focus is Worlds and he doesn’t want to come back for revenge or to reclaim a title, but to be like “sorry I kept you waiting, but I’m back.”
Some other interesting things from the video:
When Kohei is walking on the beach in Australia, he says he’s afraid of the sea because it can wash you away and that water and fire are scary. #relatable
His coach Hiroaki Sato has a detailed notebook about Kohei’s condition and training
“The main reason for my resignation is the scandal with the doctor.
Everyone is now looking for someone to blame even though I had nothing
to do with the main [team] staff at the time”.
Ummm no one is blaming you for Nassar. People are holding you accountable for weighing your gymnasts 3 times a day, calling them fat, and making them feel invisible when they make mistakes.
“Where there was pain, I now see power.”
