 Two gymnasts attempt a dual handstand which results in the ultimate fail.

Stef van der Locht from the Netherlands was practising his acrobatics in the gym when he decided to try something a little different.

 He said: “Usually with a handstand like this the girl is on top and I’m the base.

 “We’d never tried it the other way round before though so we thought we’d give it a go.”

 After readying themselves for the move, Stef placed his hands in his partners and launched his legs into the air.

 Unfortunately, it didn’t quite go to plan and the gymnast ended up faceplanting his partner. 

Stef said: “Luckily there were no injuries, but after this fail we thought it was better not to try it again!”
