@Iluviaporos - Actually the most incredible gymnastic feat I've ever seen was performed by two girls in the same way that men perform on the pommel horse but without the benefit of a gymnastics bar or anything like that.
It was two young girls in a Chinese acrobat troupe I saw at Disneyland, and they were amazing. They climbed onto a couple of chairs and basically gripped the backs of the chairs with their hands and lifted their whole bodies into the air so that they were looking down at the ground.
They even did it with one hand! I mean, I didn't realize humans were able to lift their own body weight and balance like that with only one hand.
They did a bunch of other things, like swapping hands and twisting around and all the things the men do on the pommel horse.
I guess it was easier for them since they were only preteens and therefore didn't have the mass of an adult woman, but it was one of the most amazing things I've ever seen.
