About
While the toe-on and clear-hip bars dismounts tend to mirror each other in value, they diverge when it comes to the tuck with full twist, where the toe-on version is valued at C, while the clear-hip version is valued at D. The world may never know. Most gymnasts are not going to be comfortable with a clear-hip dismount (we never see it), but I do think that this could be one of those doable, underused D elements for someone to rediscover.

One of my favorite things about this skill is that even though it’s a tucked element, the skill drawing is clearly done in a piked position.

Value
D
