This is a blog dedicated to Chinese Women Artistic Gymnastics where you can find photos and stories of Chinese gymnasts. This blog is written by someone who is not involved with gymnastics; however, as an enthusiastic TV audience, I love this sport and admire the girls who work so hard everyday for it. This is my way of saying thank you to the gymnasts for their hard work, by telling their stories. =)
