Minnesota gymnast fall video, thankfully Jalon Stephens was unhurt

How do you not get injured in a crazy crash like this?

On Thursday afternoon Minnesota Gophers Men’s Gymnast Zach Liebler posted a video on twitter that is going viral. It shows his All-American Gopher teammate Jalon Stephens working on the high bar inside of the Gophers Cooke Hall practice space. Stephens, a junior from Shreveport, Louisiana is no stranger to the high bar, earning All-American honors after finishing third on the event at the NCAA Championships this spring. However, I’m pretty sure he’s never done this before.

That’s some crazy equipment failure. Luckily Jalon walked away unharmed from that crazy fall. But its definitely gaining attention from the gymnastics world.

That would be 2016 Olympic Gold Medalist Simone Biles responding to Liebler’s tweet of the video.

I’m guessing that video will be getting more and more attention in the next few days.
