    I sometimes forget gymnastics are going without the Olympics until something like this surfaces. Simone Biles became first woman in history to land a triple double during her floor routine at the 2019 U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Kansas City, Mo. Which was part of the Team USA Champions Series. I have to say it was very impressive to see. I think we take for granted just how difficult it is for someone to make their body do something like that. I think it happens because professional athletes make it look so easy.

    That thought brought me to pose a question. What are other examples of athletes doing something so well that they make it look easy? Are there any sports out there in particular that we take for granted in that case?

    She is amazing. I think the best gymnast ever, that's what I think when watching that. Perfect body style and frame for it.

    All sports have those athletes that make the seemingly impossible look easy. I think of Shaun White in snowboarding or Tony Hawk back in the day with skateboarding, particularly because we are talking about triple doubles.

    I totally agree with you. I've never seen a better gymnast. She almost looks superhuman. Sean White and Tony Hawk are great examples of such talent. I'd say it certainly applies to Micheal Phelps and Usain Bolt as well.
