Round-off Back Tuck Full

Balance beam

Skill type

Known as
Tuck full mount
Back tuck 1/1 mount

At a certain stage, the code of points reaches what I call the “you’d have to be insane” section. Or, in the case of beam mounts, the “you’d have to be Kelly Garrison” section. Garrison was known most of all for her full-twisting, super difficult, acrobatic beam mounts, though it’s worth noting that the above GIF is Garrison performing what may or may not have been an attempt at the Garrison, the back layout with full twist. To me, that’s more of…the best-ever example of a full-twisting back tuck mount than it is a full-twisting back layout. So I’m using it here. She did both.

No one does this skill because, once again, you’d have to be insane.
