The Balance Beam Situation

Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama

Wolf Jump 1.5

Balance beam

Skill type

Known as
Wolf jump 1.5

Note: Referring to this as simply a wolf 1.5 will cause confusion between this and the wolf turn 1.5, so it’s better to always include jump to clarify.

Named after
…like, a wolf?

The wolf jump with 1.5 twists is now tied with the switch ring (among others) for most difficult dance element on beam at an E. In fact, you could perform this element in side position for an extra tenth and turn it into an F dance element even though dance elements on beam are unofficially capped at E value.

It should tell you something about the risk of this skill that no one has done this.

E (2017-)
