Gienger Piked



Uneven Bars

Skill type
Same-bar release

Known as
Piked Gienger
Not a Deltchev

Named for
Eberhard Gienger (GER) (Man)

Spelling note: The i goes before the e, as in Wieber, not as in Weiler.
Remember the rule: “I before E, except after C, or when sounding like Y as in WHY ARE YOU DOING A WEILER.”

Until 2017, the code of points made no differentiation in value between the piked Gienger (a.k.a., the national bird of China) and the laid-out Gienger, so both skills would colloquially be referred to by the catch-all Gienger. This also occurred because even the better laid-out Giengers are still pretty piked and could be mistaken for piked Giengers.

That’s why actual attempts at the laid-out Gienger have been quite rare, though with the extra tenth awarded to the laid-out version beginning in 2017, we’ll see if it experiences a boon.
