About
This particular piece of ridiculata belongs to Janine Rankin, who got it named after herself at the 1987 World Championships. Because pressing to handstand with two hands and then awkwardly raising one arm a centimeter off the beam is for losers. Jump directly to one-arm, or it didn’t happen.

It is rated a sufficiently difficult D, sharing a box with the press-handstand-to-one-arm-lower-to-something-cool mount (official name), but let’s be honest, the jump to one-arm deserves its own category.

Value
D
