The Balance Beam Situation

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama

Straddle to Low Bar

Uneven Bars

Skill type
Transition (high to low)

Known as
Straddle to low bar

This is one of those skills that still exists in the code of points but is largely a remnant of a different time. Even in the drawing, you can see that the skill is not intended to begin from handstand, which, like, what year is this? Everything starts from handstand. What, you’re expecting someone to cast to handstand, lower to a clear straddle support, and then begin this skill? Yeah, that will go over well with the E panel.
