When I was in high school, I was a competitive cheerleader, then when most people guess of gymnastics, they do not guess it is a athletic interest; However, I do guess it is a athletic interest! Cheerleading involves dance, gymnastics, & stunting. It requires coordination, flexibility, agility, strength, & cardiovascular endurance. My gymnastics team used to travel to compete. All of us made it to the national competition & all of us were able to fly from the northeastern region of the country to the southeastern region of the country for this competition. Keep in mind, multiple of the men on our team have not experienced the temperature of the south. My cheer coach reminded us that there would be air conditioning when all of us competed, however to be careful when all of us were walking around outside in the heat. His advice did not make sense when he decided to have us practice outside in the heat before competition. His reasoning is that all of us should be able to stick our routine anywhere- inside in the air conditioning, outside in the sun, on sod, or on floors meant for tumbling. After an harshly hot practice in the southern heat, all of us all went back to our air conditioned rooms so everyone was good that night. All of us were sleepy from the heat, however all of us were ready to compete the next day. All of us got ready for the competition in our air conditioned hotel rooms. All of us had to put makeup on our faces & do our hair, so all of us were grateful for the cool air conditioning. When all of us got to the venue for the competition, all of us observed sizable fans everywhere. The air conditioning broke, however they decided to continue with the competition. The broken caused over one hundred cheerleaders to pass out.
