High bar on wheels

It's one of Moscow's claims to fame, a gymnast on the high bar. What makes this so special? Well, the high bar is mounted to a semi truck which is in motion driving down the road. They have had this feature for a few years now in our parades. It is an entry from Palouse Empire Gymnastics and is a definite crowd pleaser. This young lady did about 3 minutes of spinning and stunts as the truck moved along the parade route before taking a break to go again. It is an awesome sight.

Yep, it's pretty cool to watch. The mom in me was very happy to see that she is actually strapped on at the wrist so she can't lose control and go flying into the street!
