ICYMI - Allana Slater Features on Blind Landing Podcast
At the 2000 Summer Olympics, the greatest gymnasts in the world gathered in Sydney, Australia in pursuit of their ultimate prize: gold in the women's gymnastics All-Around final. But in the midst of the competition, something inexplicable and unprecedented happened that derailed the event –– a mistake that changed the gymnasts' lives forever.
WA’s very own Allana Slater features throughout the independent podcast, Blind Landing, and plays a significant role in this momentous occasion. In the midst of the 2000 Summer Olympic All-Around final, Allana realised that it was no coincidence that a huge number of gymnasts were falling on vault.
“So I’m standing there at the end of the vault runway. And like I said, I’ve spent countless hours on vault. And I just remember thinking to myself, that vault looks low. That really looks like a low vault.”
If you haven’t listened to the Blind Landing podcast, definitely do yourself a favour and have a listen. A moment that changed the sport and gymnasts lives forever. Blind Landing is available to listen via Spotify and Apple Podcast.
