Mustafina isn’t Worlds Bar Champion, just Olympic.

Doh. Right, it was Huang Huidan.

I’ll fix that.

#3 Reed on 05.15.14 at 8:53 pm

It is Mustafina not Moustafina

#4 coach Rick on 05.15.14 at 9:43 pm

Thanks. I’ll correct that.

Is the weileresque toe on she does on the low bar at :12 a new element? I don’t remember seeing it in the COP?

That front toe on 1/2 looks very similar to what does Jesus Carballo back in late 90s just without straddle cut before handstand

It’s not really anything like what Carballo did. He did a piked endo with straddle cut, but what she does is just a toe-on endo.

But I must say the rest of the routine is huge, this is how bars should be!
