Front Layout 1.5 (Pechstein) or Double Full

Uneven Bars

Skill type

Known as
Front layout 1.5 or double full (2/1)

Named after
Tanja Pechstein (SUI)

The front layouts with twisting max out at C value, so there’s not too much value that can be squeezed out of them, even if you’re kind of good at that twisting thing. They’re quite tightly packed in, with the 1/2 and full both receiving B value and the 1.5 and double full both receiving C value. But, since they are still noted as separate elements, the 1.5 can specifically be named after the gymnast who originated it, Tanja Pechstein.

In a slight lack of continuity, the front 2/1 bars dismount is a C here, while the front 2/1 on both beam and floor is a D. The backward layout bars dismount mimic the values on other events, but the front layouts diverge in perceived difficulty.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
