Cheerleading has evolved

It seems to have incorporated Olympic (and video game) moves.  These are not without hazard, as Miss Cellania notes in her Neatorama post:
You are about to watch young men and women perform stunts that were once only seen in circuses. This is a music video from CheerSounds, a company that produces custom music for cheerleading squads, with video recorded at StuntFest 2013. The song is called "Decitona."

Oh, these gymnasts are impressive, but also frightening from a parent's perspective. A recent study in the Journal of Pediatrics confirmed a trend that cheerleading is the most dangerous sport for female Americans. So I feel I must say, "Don't try this at home." You have to wonder about the stunts that didn't make the cut.
Those who enjoy watching youngsters getting hurt can search YouTube for cheerleading +  injury.
