You know a skill has gone out of favor in gymnastics when they just throw a bunch of somewhat unrelated versions of it into the same box just like, “These are skills, whatever.”

I’m somewhat surprised the third one, the stoop through, is rated as high as C. That seems like a one-of-these-things-is-not-like-the-others situation. If I’m a lower-level elite looking to pump up my routines with some C elements, I’m looking at that one.
