According to Google\'s Calculator

10 metres = 1000 cm = 393in = 32.75 feet = 10.9 yards. A bit off by demical. I'm not out for math. Because.

Reuters of the UK reports, and I heart this from a radio show too.

A British, junior gymnastics team member, fell from the fourth floor of a Ljubljana hotel. Ljubljana with its 280.000 inhabitants, the Capital City of The Republic of Slovenia.

The gymnist is said to have suffered only a broken ankle after his skills saved his life, the Slovenian press reported on such events.

The Slovenske Novice wrote,
"Probably my gymnastic knowledge and experience saved me," - 17 year old, Steven Jehu said Tuesday.

Steve also said, "There was a big window that could be opened. I leaned out over a metal bar, but the bar suddenly broke. I couldn't do anything. I fell,"

The gymnast did a somersault while falling from the window, which was more than 10 metres (33 feet) from the ground, and braced himself for a gymnastic landing.

Jehu's favorite is the rings. one of five British junior athletes who travelled to Ljubljana last week for the European gymnastics championships. Which starts on April 15-18.

Steven said, "I got away with it all right, although the European championships for me ended before they even began,"


"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"
