Balance beam

Skill type
Acrobatic Non-Flight

Known as
Kickover Sideward
Side Valdez

Named after
Kelly Garrison (USA)

Unlike the shoulder roll, this skill is still named after Kelly Garrison in the code of points and has not mysteriously disappeared for mysterious reasons. Although, it is currently classified among the acrobatic flight elements instead of the acrobatic non-flight elements, but by the standards of the WTC and the code of points, that basically counts as correct. It’s like when Russia only counts one fall on beam, and you’re like, “Well, it’s a Russia hit.” This is a WTC hit.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
