Extended Jump to Handstand 1/1 (Maaranen)

Uneven Bars

Skill type

Known as
Extended jump 1/1 to handstand
Straight jump full to handstand

Named after
Annamari Maaranen (FIN)

So, an interesting little nugget about this skill—in the named-skill section of the code of points, Annamari Maaranen is credited with “jump with extended body to handstand, also with 1/1 turn” even though those are two separate skills in the code of points with different values. Only Her Nellieship merits multiple lines. So Maaranen does in fact have two skills named after herself in the code of points, even though her name appears only once, having performed both skills at world championships on different occasions.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
