So, this is still in the code of points, in case you want to show up and do a sole circle. If someone did that at the Olympics, just got onto the bars, did a sole circle, and hopped off, she would be the hero of the world for all of time.

But yes, in current gymnastics, this is a child’s skill. A beginner element.

It’s not to be confused with the more difficult toe-on circle, which begins in handstand, sees the gymnast adopt a toe-on position, and then ends in handstand. The simple sole circle sees the gymnast rest her feet against the bar and then circle around.
