Acrobatic Gymnastics isn’t a widely-known sport in Canada. But that’s about to change after the latest performance on ‘Canada’s Got Talent.’ 15-year-old Mila and 18-year-old Theo took the stage to defy gravity!
The pair tell the judges that they want to get more recognition for the sport. Mila and Theo love their coaches, who have been with them through all the ups and downs.
The pair have been training together since a very young age. When asked why they love Acrobatic Gymnastics, Mila replies, ‘You’re never alone, and there’s always someone that’s there for you.’
Howie jokes that he should have done gymnastics instead of comedy because, in comedy, he was always alone. The crowd enjoys the laugh, and Mila and Theo tell Howie their ultimate dream is to join Cirque du Soleil one day.
The song ‘Never Enough’ from ‘The Greatest Showman’ begins, and so do the acrobatics. The moves require great strength and concentration. At one point, Theo holds Mila while she stands in his hands. Then, Theo launches her in the air, where she flips, and he manages to catch Mila while she’s in a standing position.
They have the wow factor. The judges are stunned at their acrobatics. Another amazing move involves Theo holding his arms straight up and Mila launching into a handstand on top of his arms. Then, Theo holds her up in the handstand position while doing his own split. It is unreal to witness.
Judge Lilly Singh exclaims, ‘Let me just say Dang! Your head was very close to the ground!’ Judge Trish says, ‘I knew that there would be something so special, and I unequivocally know that this moment is right now!’ Then she elbow-smashing the ‘Golden Buzzer.’ Everyone celebrates the fantastic duo’s efforts and success!
