Great West Gym Fest, Idaho

1/1-in for Paul. That mat doesn’t look like it has a Tumbl Trak Air Foor under it, as was used in the Olympic tour.

Mikulak – 2 air flares

There are quite a few guys competing one air flare now. We can anticipate more advanced versions over the coming years. Copying the break dancers.

If you thought one air flare was cool… how do you feel about 2?! 💣💥
