Dismount

Known as
Double pike
Piked double back

About
Because, unlike on floor, the double pike dismount is valued one letter above the double tuck dismount, it has become a common choice to attempt to throw it out there instead of the double tuck and see what happens, occasionally resulting in a tragic case of knee-chest.

Value

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
