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

Even though the double tuck and double pike on floor are listed under the same number in the code of points and appear in the same box, they may both be performed in the same routine because they require different body positions. But it’s still boring.
