Apr 30, 2015
Jenny Hoffman is one of the growing number of gymnasts who practice the discipline using the gymnastics wheel. Utilizing her superior athletics and sense of balance, she is able to put on one of the most extraordinary performances you will ever see.
A sport that very few people think about when it comes to gymnastics is wheel gymnastics. Originating in Germany, this form of gymnastics uses what is known as a Rhönrad gymnastics wheel (or German wheel). The wheel was first invented in 1925 by the son of a blacksmith named Otto Feick, but the sport itself was first displayed in Berlin during the 1936 Olympic Games, though it is not an official Olympic event.
