Toe-on 1/2 to Back Tuck Full (Kraeker)

Uneven Bars

Skill type

Known as
Toe-on 1/2, back tuck full

There are several bars dismounts in the code of points that are nearly indistinguishable from each other and would probably be considered the same element if they were competed today—knowing as we do how the code of points has moved toward saying that the location of the twist does not necessarily change the element.

The Kraeker falls into this category as it is quite similar to the toe-on tuck 1.5 dismount—its own separate skill—the only difference being that Kraeker is supposed to have initiated the first half twist before flipping.
