If, however, I observe any unusually significant hazard during my presence or participation, or if I observe any concern in my or my child’s health or readiness for participation, or if my child becomes injured in any manner, even if my child believes they can still participate, I will immediately bring such to the attention of the nearest WGC official and remove my child from participation and/or continue to participate solely at the Gymnast’s liability; should a coach or WGC official direct my child to no longer participate, I will remove my child from the event immediately; and,
