Hip Circle Dismount

Uneven Bars

Skill type

Known as
Hip circle dismount
Hip circle away
That’s allowed?

This still exists in the code, you guys! As a skill you can do. I mean, I don’t know why you would because it’s just a B element, but the fact that it remains an option is remarkable when so many old fashioned hip circle and bar-bounce elements have long since been eliminated. This thing was ALL the rage in the 1974 bars final.

I would like to see someone do it, just to be all surprising. Memo to someone who is coming back from injury and just planning to do a flyaway: do this instead.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
