Gymnastics Coach Saves Student From Falling Head First In Viral Video

gymnast falls, caught by coach

Incredible!

In a video that has gone viral over the weekend (despite being shared on YouTube a week ago), a gymnastics coach saves a young gymnast from falling on the mat head first during a routine for a competition.

It happened when an 11-year-old competitor named Caidance, a student at the Gym Magic Gymnastics Club in Canada, was warming up on uneven bars for the Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Ontario Championships. She slipped and her coach, Vitali Laurentide, was observing and later made a split-second move to catch the student.

Gym Magic Gymnastics posted on their Facebook page moments after, “Our amazing coach Vitali won an award at Provinicals too for Best Catch Ever! We are thankful to have such great coaches at Gym Magic!”

Caidence is believed to have placed 6th on the bars in her age division.

See just how close Caidance’s head was to the mat before the coach flipped them both over to avoid dangerous head and neck impact:
