Cheerleader’s attempt at backflip earns her a face full of basketball court

Despite all of the glamour of being a cheerleader at any level, the sport is one of the most intense and dangerous ones you could do. Exhibit A: This cheerleader trying to do a cartwheel into a backflip.

I feel this cheerleader’s pain. That can’t be fun for her. That said, given that she didn’t paralyze herself, I would have enjoyed it if she did the “gymnast sticking a landing” pose with her arms extended and her proudest smiley face. If you’re going to fail, fail with gusto.
