Event
Balance beam

Skill type
Acrobatic

Known as
Worley

Like the Onodi, the Worley is too complicated to describe to call it anything other than the Worley, the skill just doesn’t have the footprint in gymnastics for that naming to have become ubiquitous the way the Onodi has.

Named after
Shayla Worley (USA)

About
The Worley is a close cousin of the Onodi—but finishing on two feet instead of one at a time—though it has never caught on even remotely in elite gymnastics. Even the 2017 upgrade of the element from D to E in order to separate it from the D-valued Onodi has done nothing to promote anyone to compete it. Shame.

Value
E (2017-)
D (2007-2016)
