Dive Roll

Floor exercise

Skill type
Hand support

Known as
Dive roll
Hecht roll

Eeeeevery once in a while, you’ll still see a dive roll on floor, but it will be intended as a cool, throwback, “hey now” choreographic element rather than as a counting skill, since it’s just an A and, like, requires effort and whatnot.

If we had a requirement where gymnasts had to show something from the hand support family on floor (not a bad idea if we expand this section back to include some more olde-tyme elements), we would see a lot more dive rolls, and I would not be opposed.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
