Drew vs. You - Tumbling with Aaliyah Ardoin

It is time once again for Drew vs. You, and this week's challenger left me head over heels, in pain.

This week on Drew vs. You, we are at Washington-Marion high school. I'm here with Aaliyah Ardoin, she's a sophomore and she has challenged me to a tumbling contest. Now, what do I need to do to be a successful tumbler? 

Just try hard? 

Aaliyah started taking gymnastics when she was 5 years old. She placed 7th in a national competition at age 10, and last summer, she won the jump-off and the tumble-off at the McNeese cheerleading camp. And this was just a warmup.

I - N - D - I - A - N - S.

Okay, so I think we've found the sport where I have absolutely no hope of ever getting any better. Aaliyah, do I have any future as a tumbler? 

No.

Not even the toe touch? 

Not really.

Okay, I guess that does it for this week's Drew vs. You.

    Patient safety is paramount in hospital settings and traditionally, it has taken one-to-one care 24/7 for some of the most at-risk patients. KPLC's Britney Glaser shows how a new video monitoring system is keeping patients safe and freeing up nursing staff for other duties.
