After 2020, CHEER had persuaded me that I tried the gymnast recently tweeted for Navarro Cheer. But some journalists push back against the unbridled positive atmosphere around the series. In almost every Cheer episode one young athlete gets injured after another. On camera they constantly speak about how difficult and dangerous the sport is. Certainly there is potential for bodily harm in virtually any sport. But the lengths the cheerleaders are pulling their bodies at are serious. Young women sometimes cough up into the air 100 pounds or less. Stunts and tricks are performed as ankles are sprayed by the people performing them, pulling muscles and potentially even concussions.
