Bail 1.5 (Strong)

Uneven Bars

Skill type
Transition (high to low)

Known as
Bail 1.5

Named after
Lori Strong (CAN)

The Strong transition is named after Lori Strong (Ballard), a Canadian Olympian, then a Georgia gymnast, and now an LSU commentator. It is exceptionally rare, mostly because of its insane difficulty, but a favorite skill of gymnerds past and present nonetheless. Alas, because of its difficulty and the impossibility of connecting anything out of it for value, don’t expect there to be a sudden run on Strongs. It’s one of those “we’ll always have Paris” skills.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
