Split Side Leap

Event
Balance beam

Skill type
Dance

Known as
Split side
Split leap 1/4

About
The split side is never seen in modern gymnastics because of its relatively unusable B value and the difficulty of introducing it as a filler skill in a mixed series for bonus (a concept that has revitalized a number of other B elements on beam), though I think someone creative could come up with a way to use this one.

Weird thing about this skill: the switch side on beam is currently attributed to Kathy Johnson in the code of points, but she is known for performing this element—the split side—not the switch side.

Value
B
