Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.

I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open. For those of us who live in Canada and can’t watch the video.

I cried. Actual tears. I’m so proud of her.

My 7 year old daughter who is a gymnast watched this about 20 times already . She wants to compete one day and now feels like she could and succeed.
