    IMO, if I want to feel the looseness & rhythm in drawing down the figure, who else to look up to other than the elegant gymnasts?

    Good news is there's a lot of websites out there about gymnasts, as well as google images & youtube.

    Bad news is, there's way too many of them, so anyone here narrow down some good, decent websites showcasing images of gymnasts in action?

    Also, care to list down the best gymnasts every artist should draw from? I can only think of Nastia Liukin, Jordyn Wieber, "unimpressed" Mckayla Maroney, Gabby Douglas, Vanessa Ferrari, Alicia Sacramone, Shawn Johnson and so on.

    Please help? Thanks.

    I'm not sure it's quite what you're after, but I was pointed to scott-eaton.com a while back. There's a gallery category there called bodies-in-motion where you can find photo series picturing male and female ballet dancers, martial arts, parkour, and fighting and fencing.
