TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The greatest moments in sports history can be turned into home decor that’s a real hit.

Just ask artist Rick Rush, who’s made a living for the last two decades painting the greatest triumphs in sports and the athletes who’ve made a huge impact.

This includes Tiger Woods’ many victories, the epic 2007 Red Sox World Series win, and many other memorable moments.

Though he focuses on traditional pastimes like baseball and football, other sports are not to be overlooked.

Rush has released a series of paintings featuring great moments in gymnastics, a sport that only gets its due attention during the Olympics.

He says the 1984 Olympics was an especially major time for the sport, so he put all the athletes from that time into his series, which he feels would be an inspirational addition to any home.

Rush believes gymnasts’ physical strength, flexibility, agility, and grace is certainly something to be admired.
