Coach Amazingly Saves A Gymnast's Life Twice In One Minute (Video)

By

A young gymnast struggling with her routine owes her life – and spine, probably – to her coach.

During the final rounds of March 8's L'International Gymnix competition in Montreal, young athlete Sara Berardinelli's routine didn't go according to plan.

Luckily, a focused coach who knew her routine by heart stepped in at exactly the right moment.

And when Berardinelli attempted the challenging move a second time, he broke her fall once more.

This coach certainly has his pupil's back.
