Gienger Piked



Uneven Bars

Skill type
Same-bar release

Known as
Piked Gienger
Not a Deltchev

Named for
Adrienn Nyeste (HUN) – straddle version (obsolete)
Eberhard Gienger (GER) (Man)

Spelling note: The i goes before the e, as in Wieber, not as in Weiler.

Until 2017, the code of points made no differentiation in value between the piked Gienger (seen above) and the laid out Gienger, so both skills would be referred to by the catch-all Gienger. This was particularly helpful because even the better attempts at a laid out Gienger still look kind of piked and can easily be mistaken for piked Giengers.

The Gienger in straddle shape no longer exists as a skill in the code of points (tell that to most of the people doing it in NCAA), but it is still given to Adrienn Nyeste in the named skill section, a rare moment of charity.
