Inspirational Sports Blog Kyle Shewfelt

Posted by drilly on May 24, 2008

I have been following the Blog of Kyle Shewfelt a Canadian Gymnast and I find it fantastically inspirational on all sorts of levels. Kyle is the current Olympic Floor exercise champion and he stared the blog in August  2007 to document his preparation for Beijing 2008. However in September he broke both his legs. The Blog is a wonderful account of the journey he has been on to get himself into contention for again for Beijing. The punishing training routines and the mental battles he has won to get his Olympic dream back on track make great reading and the videos he has posted show this phenomenal athletes abilities. This post and video from Kyle sum up exactly what I mean.

I have always really admired gymnasts the incredible limits they push their bodies to perform unbelievable skills. I truly hope Kyle makes it and if he does (even though I am Scottish) I will be rooting for him in Beijing.
