Today we talk about the body weight culture in gymnastics. This episode was inspired by Katelyn Ohashi’s blog post, Dear Voices. We also discuss our personal experiences as a former gymnast and parent of a gymnast of the weight culture and what we may have done differently if we could do it again. Thank you Katelyn for being so honest and open the conversation about weight in gymnastics.
We want to hear from you! Continue the conversation with us. How do you think we can change the impact that weight has in the sport? Do any parents have advice for how talk to their daughters about body weight? Do any gymnast or former gymnast have any stories about their experiences with body weight that still sticks with them today?
