No, she would just vault right over him!



Wonder if she'd have any success on special teams ... blocking field goals?

Size is a major factor for gymnasts. Body mass vs muscle mass ratio is the key.

While football players have lots of muscle they have lots of mass.
Gymnasts tend to have a lot of muscle but not so much mass.
This allows them to do things that larger bodies cannot.
