Front Aerial 1.5 Dismount

Known as
Front aerial 1.5

The front aerial beam dismounts are highly out of fashion in modern gymnastics, given both their low value and general…what? Typically, the WTC now runs away from hybrid elements—in this case it’s a little bit aerial and little bit layout salto—but that used to be a thing.

It takes until the 1.5 twist to get up to a C value, which is how the code undermines encouraging anyone to perform these dismounts because the regular front 1.5 is also C value. And you get to punch into that one and don’t even have to do it from an aerial, so there’s really no need to dig into the history books to unearth this one.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
