My test scores, my height, and my GPA look average. You can't tell by looking at me that I can push, tumble, rebound my body and flip twice in the air, land on my feet, all without a piece of hair falling out of place. You can't tell by looking at me that I felt the weight of a gold regional champion metal around my neck when I was 15. And you can't tell by looking at me that I do a sport that is 99% landing on my face and getting right back up to try it again.
