Front Aerial Full Dismount

Front aerial full

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.

And this is still an entire family of beam dismounts that exist to be performed, though at a B value, even the aerial with a full twist is rated too low for anyone to do. It’s the same as the back handspring, so no one is out there alms-for-the-poor-ing around, desperate for a B element to count.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
