Arabian Mount (Erceg)

Balance beam

Skill type

Known as
Arabian mount

Named after
Tina Erceg (CRO)

Croatia’s Tina Erceg is a down-in-history kind of legend because of her commitment to performing the intensely difficult Arabian mount. She got it named after herself at the 2007 world championships, though had been performing it for years even before that.

The skill was originally given an F value when Erceg submitted it, but it was upgraded to a G in 2013, four years before so many of the other difficult acrobatic mounts were upgraded, to reflect the fact that it’s, you know, an Arabian as a beam mount. It is one of only two beam mounts awarded the maximum possible value, the other being the back layout with full twist.

G (2013-)
F (2007-2012)

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
