Split Jump 1/2

Split 1/2

Want to hear something crazy? When I first made this skill database in late 2016/early 2017, I didn’t include a page for the split jump with 1/2 turn because it didn’t appear in any routines. Doing a split jump 1/2 from side position just wasn’t a thing. Now it’s the only thing.

Item #1: The split jump with 1/2 turn was upgraded from a B to a C element in 2017. Item #2: Jumps that begin and end in side position (above) receive an extra letter grade. Those two items combine to mean that the previously lowly split jump 1/2 can now be used for D value, and everyone has jumped on that bandwagon. In nearly all cases, it is horrifying and wobbly.

C (2017-)
B (-2016)

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
