About
The back 2/1 has started to become one of the coolest kids in school among beam dismounts. Formerly, you had to be willing to take a difficulty hit of 0.2 if you performed a C dismount (we still saw them, but only from gymnasts who had no other choice), but now it is the realistic dismount of choice for many—or at least a placeholder for those still entertaining the notion that they can do a 2.5 or 3/1 but who probably will never end up upgrading to that in competition.

Value
C
