Same-bar release

Known as
Piked Gienger
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.”

About
Until 2017, the code of points made no differentiation in value between the piked Gienger and the laid-out Gienger, so both skills would predominately be referred to by the catch-all Gienger. This also happened because even the better laid-out Giengers are still pretty piked and could be mistaken for piked Giengers.

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

Value
D

Currently performed by
Larrissa Miller (AUS)

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
