What Happens When You Put a Gymnast Through Spellcheck?

Usually I try to go for the high-quality, in-depth analysis. But this time I’m going to change things up with a playful/joke article. Whenever I write about gymnastics, Spellcheck is always “correcting” the names of the gymnasts I write about. Often times with hilarious results. So I started taking some famous gymnasts, put their names through Spellcheck, just to see what would happen.
