Double Front Pike 1/2 Out (Pentek)

Uneven Bars

Skill type

Known as
Double front pike, 1/2 out
Front double pike w/ half twist

Named after
Tunde Pentek (HUN)

The double front tuck with 1/2 twist has caused enough problems for enough people (RIP Nastia’s legs) that you can imagine why the piked version of the skill is rare-to-nonexistent despite its alluring F value—very unusual among dismounts, only a couple have that distinction. Too deathy.

Still Tunde Pentek did it. Like the Lewis and Clark of our time.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
