Aerial Over Beam

Balance beam

Skill type

Known as
Aerial over beam
Aerial from side position mount

The aerial over the beam used to be one of the most comically undervalued skills in the code of points, valued at a B, which was the same as the walkover version even though…you know…you get to use your hands with that one. I still feel like it is somewhat undervalued at C—it could be an elegant, less clunky challenger to the omnipresent candle mount if given the same rating—but at least it’s something.

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
