About
Ah, the double pike. The favorite final floor pass of gymnasts far and wide. Why they opt for the double pike instead of the equally valued and easier double tuck remains a mystery.

Even though the double tuck and double pike on floor are listed under the same number in the code of points, they may both be performed in the same routine because they take different body positions. It’s terrible.

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
