About
The Comaneci is a closely-related cousin of the dismount we still see today, the front tuck 1/2 (like she might actually be your half sister even though everyone calls her “Cousin Becky”), but the difference comes in the timing of the twist. Rather than being a 1/2-twisting front salto, the Comaneci dismount has a 1/2 twist when immediately releasing the bar, followed by a back tuck. Nonetheless, the two dismounts are valued the same.
