LOOK: Olympics Gymnastics in 1950s vs 2016

Wow. Gymnastics have come a looooong way.

This video, posted by MTV News on Facebook, shows a side by side comparison of the sport in the 1950s and 1960s versus to now, in 2016. And, we must say, it’s very different. Techniques are a lot harder now, more technical than ever and, for a lack of better term, just pretty much more insane. In general. I mean, have you seen Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles on the mat and the bars??? You don’t get named a move (The Biles) for nothin’.

See the comparison here:

Gymnastics isn’t what it used to be… and that’s a good thing.
