Epke Zonderland wins the whole Olympics
From start to beyond the finish, Epke Zonderland had the Olympic moment everyone wants to see. A routine that makes people gasp, an amazing dismount with a drilled landing, and a reaction of pure happiness and joy. And while it was obviously, and officially, the most difficult routine of the Games, it was the routine that makes you say, I wish I could do that.
Why do gymnasts love gymnastics? Why will I never slog through a miserable marathon for some stupid "bucket list?"
Because running feels like hell; gymnastics feels like flying.
