The Balance Beam Situation

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama

Toe-on Forward Full in L-grip

Uneven Bars

Skill type

Known as
Toe-on forward full in L
Pike sole circle forward 1/1 in eagle

Named after
Hanneke Hoefnagel (NED)

Sadly, this is one of the relatively recent eponymous elements that does not have extant video evidence despite the fact that Hoefnagel got it named after herself at 2006 worlds. Come on, 2006. Pull it together.

Like the regular and 1/2 turn varieties, this skill is not worth any more just for being in L-grip, so these days it basically exists to be cool and get named after yourself rather than as an efficient aspect of routine composition. Hence the no one who is currently performing it.
