During gymnastics, time not only slows down, but occasionally freezes as the gymnast’s body moves, performing what seem to be one and the same routines. The gymnasium is the gymnasts’ temple. The absolute goal of this effort, discipline and these endless exercises is the most purely executed figure of movement possible, while the cyclical exercises strive to achieve as straight a line as possible.
