…like, a wolf?

About
One of the most common dance elements on beam, the wolf jump is so named because there is nothing in the history of time that has looked less like a wolf. It remains a common way to fulfill the dance-combination requirement on beam, though it remains an A in the 2017 code while the split jump and straddle jump become B elements as part of a comprehensive attack against those who identify as Animal-Element.

Value
A

 

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
