This Gymnast Going for a Guinness World Record Is You Getting Psyched for the Olympic Ceremonies Tonight

By

The time is almost upon us! Time to watch sports you haven’t seen in four years, temporarily acquire the skills necessary to judge them from your couch, and cheer for America with an enthusiasm unfettered by our nation's current slew of hot, wet garbage. In honor of Rio 2016, gymnast Alberto Busnari, who has competed in four Olympic Games, attempted to attain a Guinness World Record for the most Thomas flairs on a pommel horse. What’s a Thomas flair, you ask? Not only will you know it when you see it, but you will also know exactly how to grade them. Are the legs flippity-floppity enough? How fast do the legs go flippity-floppity? Are the legs also pointy? Enjoy critiquing sports you know nothing about, and let the Games ... almost begin!
