Gymnastics developed from circus performance skills and exercises practiced by the ancient Greeks, including horse mounting and dismounting techniques.
The arm, leg, shoulder, back, chest, and abdominal muscles majorly develop from strenuous gymnastics movements.
Are tattoos permitted for Olympians?
It’s a valid question, given the elite competition’s notoriously rigorous restrictions — but as seen by the picture above, yes — Olympians are permitted to get tattoos, and many athletes have taken advantage of that over the years. Many contestants decide to tattoo the recognizable picture of the Olympic Games’ five rings to mark the occasion.
There are lots of reasons to like watching Olympic competitors. Despite what tone-deaf males or Internet trolls may say, their inspiring attitudes, incredible strength and speed, commitment to breaking records, and impressive makeup can all be seen. You can now include tattoo envy on that list.
For the select few who have prepared sufficiently to make it to the Olympic Games, getting a tattoo of the Olympic rings is a rite of passage. And it’s reasonable to say that the 20-year-old American gymnast is more than deserving of the accolade.
Before appearing on the twenty-fourth season of Dancing With the Stars, Biles acquired the design (her first!), which she created with buddy singer Jake Miller (yay, she brought home four gold medals from Rio). Not at all a tactic to frighten rivals…
