FRont Salto 1/2 or Full

Uneven Bars

Skill type

Known as
Front salto 1/2 or 1/1
Front layout 1/2 or full

This dismount is basically gone from gymnastics because it’s too simple to be worth doing at just B value, but also still requires some intent and technique and performance, so if you’re just going to do a nothing-dismount for whatever limbs-of-shattered-silk reasons, you’ll just do a flyaway or something and not bother trying to twist.

These in-between skills, the ones the require effort but are too simple to be valuable—i.e., compulsory style skills—are the greatest extinction victim in recent gymnastics history.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
