This inspiring lady specialized. She even married a fellow gymnast (and had three daughters with him). She didn’t compete in the Olympics but she competed and coached for most of her life.
She almost WASN’T a gymnast. She took up handball for a while because the Allied Control Council BANNED gymnastics in Germany after WW2. One would have thought the EBIL Nahtzees would have banned gymnastics rather than the “freedom loving” Allies. Ha!
At age 30 she went back to gymnastics and has been at it ever since.
The lesson: specialize and you might get famous some day! Johanna made the Guiness Book of World Records! Also, don’t be afraid to start later in life. What else have you got to do?
