I was one of Mr. Farkas’ gymnasts
I was one of Mr. Farkas’ gymnasts. I love this man with all my heart and soul. Sure he was hard on us but he had a lot of love for us, too. Some of the best times of my life were when I was on the Jamestown YMCA Gymnastics Team. I’ll never forget all the times he made us feel stupid when we couldn’t master a trick and he could still do them - even with his fake leg. The best time was when it went flying off when he got on the trampoline. He laughed, we laughed. That was Mr. Farkas.
