Swedish MMA fighters are on fire inside the Octagon of late, but that still doesn’t change the fact that their people has a long history of being mediocre at gymnastics at best, and nothing proves this more than this .gif below.
Of course, these men are MMA fighters, not gymnasts, but that doesn’t change the fact that these moves are botched. Maybe these flips were something they tried in the gym, and they thought it would look cool, so in an adrenaline-fueled moment of triumph, they attempted to launch themselves into the air, only to fail somewhat.
It’s okay though, the Swedes are good people. Strong people. Not to mention beautiful. If I could pick another country to live in, Sweden would be on the short list. However, they still have only have 8 Olympic medals in gymnastics over the last 100 years, so maybe these tumbling fails aren’t because their MMA fighters, and not gymnasts, but because the wonderful citizens of Sweden simply aren’t that good at gymnastics? Kind of like Americans aren’t good at maintaining a healthy weight or keeping the net neutral.
