Handstand Hop 1/4

Balance beam

Skill type

Known as
Handstand hop 1/4
Hop 1/4
Lori hop

Did you know that this skill is called the Lori hop? Because it’s called the Lori hop. After Lori Strong. Lori hop. Which is awfully familiar, if you ask me. It’s Miss Strong, to you.

Why this doesn’t appear in the code of points as an element named after Lori Strong is just one of those “the named skill section of the code of points is an actual dumpster fire” because it’s her element. And like a lot of eponymous beam mounts, it’s pretty much just a one-woman show. It’s not like a lot of people were doing this handstand hop 1/4 and there’s just no way to keep track of who was first.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
