International gymnastics is very confusing 🙂 In Scandinavia we call a side aerial a ‘schmetterling’, which means ‘butterfly’ in German ‍♀️

By the way, I hate butterflies after having to kill them and pin them down for science class. One night I woke up in the middle of the night by a creepy sound: It was one of the butterflies walking all over the board with a big pin through its stummick 🙁

this exact thing happened to me – 1975, couldn’t graduate junior high without 8th grade bio and 8th grade bio required creating an entire board of bug specimens. I had a huge monarch that would not die. Still traumatized. A curricula tailor-made to make impressionable young women (think they) hate science.

We in Germany are not as wimpy as people in the US. So we do not have AC. 😉 Ilka
