1/2, Pike Vault (Monckton)

Uneven Bars

Skill type
Transition (high to low)

Known as
(Really only that because it’s a pain to try to describe otherwise)

Named after
Mary-Anne Monckton (AUS)

Monckton got this skill named after herself at the 2011 world championships, though there was some ultimate consternation with how it was evaluated, leading Monckton to drop the skill later on—and probably the reason it hasn’t caught on since. The intent was that this skill would be seen as sort of a piked version of the Shushunova (at that time an exceptionally valuable G element, now downgraded to E), but instead this was awarded a D value, three tenths lower than the Shushunova.
