Gainer Tuck Full from End (Kim)

Gainer tuck full (end) (Kim)

Balance beam

Skill type

Known as
Gainer tuck full
Gainer tuck 1/1 off end

Named After
Nellie Kim (SOV)

Nellie Kim did go back and give herself this skill in 2007, because of course she did. This is perhaps one of the more legitimate Nelliefications in the code of points in that she did successfully complete this skill and I believe was the first person to do so at the 1976 Olympics, but you know. She still went back and named it after herself, and was sure to retain this skill in its own box, when many other gainer dismounts were revised so that they could only go to the side of the beam and not the end.

So it’s still Full Nellie.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
