Transcription

  • (SPORTS SWAP)
  • Margarita Mamun. Russian. Rhythmic gymnastics.
  • This is Mamun's moment.
  • Dedicated, funny and very calm.
  • How did she do that?
  • A gold medal performance for Margarita Mamun.
  • Heather O'Reilly from United States and I play football.
  • Oh, what a brilliant goal!
  • Determined, athletic, fierce.
  • That was sheer quality.
  • I'm very proud I won gold three times.
  • Can't beat that.
  • (FOOTBALL/GYMNASTICS) (GYMNASTICS/FOOTBALL)
  • - Hi. - Hi.
  • - I'm Heather. - I'm Margarita.
  • - Nice to meet you. - Nice to meet you too.
  • I do rhythmic gymnastics.
  • Margarita Mamun!
  • Today is your turn.
  • - What do you think? - Well, I'm a little nervous.
  • I have no rhythm, no flexibility,
  • I've never done this before but I'm so excited to learn.
  • (THE SPORT COMBINES BALLET, GYMNASTICS,)
  • (DANCE AND APPARATUS MANIPULATION)
  • I'm a very tenacious, aggressive player
  • and I think that generally the women's soccer world
  • would say that fluidity and calmness and rhythm
  • are certainly not the first words that they would think
  • when they think of Heather O'Reilly
  • on a soccer field.
  • So football is the world's most popular sport.
  • Did you play football growing up?
  • No, I didn't play and I'm so excited to play it now.
  • I have coordination,
  • some feelings with the apparatus -
  • and I will try my best!
  • (THE INITIATION)
  • I want to see what can you do.
  • - OK. - Maybe like this.
  • Wow, that was awesome.
  • Now it's your turn.
  • I don't know if I remember every step, but...
  • Ah, no problem.
  • OK.
  • Maybe like that. Yeah.
  • It's good.
  • - OK. - How did you find it?
  • Very hard.
  • How many years have you been doing this?
  • 13 years.
  • Wow. So, do you think maybe in 13 years
  • I can do what you do?
  • Maybe, yes.
  • I think I nailed it, personally.
  • No. I was terrible, it was so hard.
  • What Margarita does is amazing.
  • The grace and poise that she shows
  • in doing rhythmic gymnastics is really impressive
  • and it's not easy.
  • I think that anybody who thinks that that can pick this up
  • and do it right away is dead wrong.
  • Is that supposed to be like that?
  • OK, so we're here on the football pitch.
  • The game is all about dribbling,
  • scoring goals, shooting, being confident.
  • We're going to put a few of those skills together
  • and it's going to look a little bit like this.
  • Now it's your turn.
  • How can I do it?
  • Like here.
  • Oh, close.
  • Nice! Yeah, you got to celebrate.
  • So, what did you think of that?
  • It's hard.
  • To look, it's very easy, but to play, it's very hard.
  • To do like this and...
  • Yeah, I know. I thought it was good.
  • I think that you have really good ball control
  • for not having played and I think that part of it
  • might be from your rhythmic gymnastics.
  • You have very good control of your body.
  • So, the footwork will come.
  • (THE BASICS)
  • Let's start to learn some basic elements.
  • OK, I think I need that.
  • OK, one turn.
  • - We have to sit like this. - OK.
  • You can try with me.
  • - Yes. - And do this.
  • Great, and like this.
  • OK, we can do some balance,
  • - like this and this. - OK.
  • Like a ballerina.
  • Yes. Great.
  • - And maybe some leaps. - OK.
  • Lift...
  • Leap.
  • - Yeah, great. - Thank you.
  • We can do it with the ribbon.
  • - OK. - Yes.
  • - Don't move your arm. - OK.
  • - Only the wrist, like this. - OK.
  • Yeah. Like this, great, and move faster.
  • - Da-da! - Ah, much better.
  • You can do like this.
  • (THROW AND CATCH)
  • Ah cool. That was awesome.
  • - Yes. - OK, same thing but leap
  • and catch it in the air.
  • You can do it, you know how to do these basics and...
  • - Put together. - All together, yeah.
  • OK.
  • Yeah. That's great.
  • Thank you.
  • I want us to work on ball control
  • a little bit more, right in this space, just dribble
  • around all the areas of your foot, inside outside.
  • Inside outside, I know.
  • Yeah. OK, so now we're going to get
  • the stepover involved.
  • So, take your touch, step over the ball
  • and use the other foot to push it past your defender.
  • - You can try. - OK, please.
  • Good. OK, now we're going to focus
  • on the shooting element of this exercise.
  • You want to bend it.
  • And what I mean by bend it is you don't want
  • to use your laces, you don't want
  • to use the inside of your foot.
  • You want to use the spot right in between.
  • Give that a try.
  • Nice!
  • - Yeah. - That was awesome.
  • Now we're going to work on side volleys
  • and what you want to work on is getting
  • your leg up using your laces,
  • keeping your chest over the ball,
  • putting in the back of the net.
  • - Your turn. - Wow, am I...?
  • You have the flexibility.
  • So?
  • Ah, good try.
  • I will try the best. OK.
  • - Close. - I have to close. Yeah.
  • Yeah.
  • (THE CHALLENGE)
  • OK, this is your moment
  • to show all the moves in the routine.
  • - Good luck. - OK. I think I need it.
  • (TO PERFORM A ROUTINE WITH THE RIBBON)
  • Thank you.
  • Oh, I dropped.
  • It was great.
  • With your drop, it doesn't matter.
  • And your smile in the end of your routine
  • is the best moment and judges will like it.
  • Thank you, you're a great teacher.
  • Thank you.
  • I have never used the ribbon in that way,
  • so it's completely new to me, completely foreign to me
  • and I'm such a competitor and perfectionist
  • but in something like this you just have to,
  • like, let all of that go and just have fun
  • and try to learn and do the best you can.
  • (THREE ATTEMPTS TO SCORE A GOAL)
  • Here's the challenge.
  • We're going to put together everything
  • that you learned, all three skills.
  • You're going to dribble,
  • do an inside-out move on the first defender,
  • then do a stepover move on the second defender,
  • pass the ball to me and you're going to side volley
  • into the back of the net.
  • Good.
  • That's OK. Two more chances.
  • You can do this. You got this.
  • Good, good. Nice.
  • Getting closer. Good work. Here we go.
  • Good. Yes.
  • - Good. - Yeah!
  • I'm very happy to do this challenge
  • and I'm proud of myself and herself
  • because she is a great teacher.
  • Very good, yeah.
  • In gymnastics, you don't have these celebrations.
  • - Awesome! Good stuff. - Thank you!
  • (SHOWBOATING)
  • Since you're so graceful, I think that you can handle
  • some of these skill challenges.
  • So, pop it up, cradle it, back to the ground.
  • Good.
  • Nice!
  • Let's see what kind of tricks you can do.
  • Yeah.
  • Try that. You can maybe do it better than me.
  • Ah!
  • - Look at that! - Yeah.
  • I can't even do that.
