About
Given its low value, the gainer pike is almost never used at the elite level, with gymnasts who feel the need to go for a gainer electing to perform the more respectably valued layout version. You will see the gainer pike at other levels of gymnastics, but just to confirm that the WTC has no interest in it, the value was lowered from C to B starting in 2017.

Value
B (2017–)
C (2006-2016)

Currently performed by
Ana Derek (CRO)
