A REAL MOUNT

About
It may not look like much, but the switch split mount is verging on being an actual mount involving difficulty, so that’s good enough for us. It’s good enough for the WTC as well, which has elevated the skill to a D from a C for the 2017 code of points in order to encourage gymnasts to do something, ANYTHING, that isn’t boring trash.

Value
D (2017–)
C (2006-2017)

Currently performed by
Giulia Steingruber (SUI)
