About
For whatever reason, you’ll only rarely hear this skill referred to as a front tuck on beam, with punch front being the far more common terminology. You know, to differentiate it from all those standing front tucks we see. But actually probably to differentiate it from the kickover front, a skill common at non-elite levels of gymnastics though all-but-nonexistent at the elite level.

Ideally, it’s landed not in an IBS squat.

Value
D

 

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
