Does anybody care that these are Parallel Bars and NOT a “balance beam”?

Nope. Not one bit. My hat's off to those grandmas.

My granddad was a building contractor by trade. After he retired in 1965, he shut down his business and spent the next twenty years keeping busy by doing all the work on his rental properties.

I once caught him hanging the last sheet of a new drywall ceiling when he was 81. That man never stopped until the body finally wore completely out.

I'll be 60 in two months, and I still put on my tool belt every day. I'm training my two teenage sons to take over the business when I finally need to hang it up one day.

And that the apparatus is normally used by male gymnasts.

I can appreciate what she does here but I would really like to have seen her on the balance beam.

Not at all. The person who wrote the title made a mistake, but the performance speaks for itself.

Her strength moves are hard to imagine when realizing her age.

If you do gymnastics for as long as she apparently has, they will be.
