Straddle Jump Full

Balance beam

Skill type

Known as
Straddle jump 1/1
Straddle pike full

While the straddle jump with 1/2 turn has experienced a massive boost in popularity in the 2017-2020 quadrennium when performed from side position, the same cannot be said for the straddle jump with full turn, which remains a missing person despite the fact that it could be worth an E if performed from the side (+0.1 for dance elements performed from the side).

You will hear this element called a Popa because the straddle jump with full turn on floor is named after Celestina Popa, though it’s just a matter of ease and familiarity. She doesn’t actually have the straddle jump 1/1 on beam named after her.
