Layout 1.5 Dismount

Uneven Bars

Skill type

Known as
Back layout 1.5
Flyaway 1.5

The back layout with 1.5 twists is the first of the back layout skills that the code doesn’t give the “flyaway” moniker—you’ll more often hear this described as a back 1.5—but it still qualifies as part of the flyaway family. It’s simply a little more difficult than the word “flyaway” would typically indicate.

The back 1.5 and back 2/1 are given the same value in the code of points, and in a surprising piece of continuity, that is true across the events, as the back 1.5 and 2/1 have the same value as each other on beam and floor as well. We’re all shocked.
