1/2 in, Front Layout (Blanco)

Uneven Bars

Skill type

Known as
1/2 in, front layout
1/2-twisting double layout

Named after
Bibiana Blanco (COL)

In one of the “you actually did something” recent developments in the code of points, this skill was formerly given the named distinction of “Blanco TBC idk you’re not even Russian or friends with me” but has since been revised to award this remarkable, preposterous skill to Bibiana Blanco.

Anyway, it’s fairly ridiculous, a double layout dismount but with a half turn in the first salto so that the dismount has to end with a front layout. “No thanks,” said pretty much everybody, especially not for an E value.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
