About
The Comaneci has all but disappeared in modern elite gymnastics, a result of the supremacy of connection value even more than the risk of the skill. It’s nearly (though not completely) impossible to connect into or out of the Comaneci, and with competitive D-scores built heavily on connections, the Comaneci becomes a much less valuable skill than its E value would seem to suggest. Currently, the Comaneci is more of a prestige skill (“I can do a Comaneci!”) than a realistic way to built competitive D-score on bars.
