Shang Chunsong – missing handstands

Shang Chunsong is my favourite of the current Chinese Senior Team. Right now she’s worried about her future after disappointing performances on Bars in Nanning.

I was shocked to see a Chinese gymnast miss handstands like this.

Chinese coaches put very high priority on saving handstands.

circus Bar act – Tournik

Eight artists cross paths in the Tournik Act from Corteo which marries horizontal bar techniques with circus arts. The artists perform on a central cube-shaped structure, with two additional bars on each side of the cube. The various parts of the structure turn, sometimes all in the same direction, sometimes in opposite directions… just to keep everyone on their toes!

Good and crazy Bar workers, male and female, are pretty much constantly in demand by Cirque du Soleil. If you coach such an athlete, contact Casting for more information.

This is good. :-)

Bars – the Vivian


#ThrillingThursday! This is the move we call 'THE VIVIAN'!! I broke my back trying to learn this skill last year, but persistence and determination made me try again! Unfortunately the technical committee only valued it a 'C' which was heartbreaking, but that's life. I want to thank my bar coach @jfabs101 for believing such a crazy skill idea could work, and the numerous Australian coaches who helping teach a skill that's never been done! A special thanks goes out to the team at @internationalgymcamp who helped me re-learn this skill and make it possible! ???????????? #TheVivian #Bars #Gymnastics #NewSkill #WhatAThrill

To handstand, I assume it would be awarded D-part.

To handstand in undergrip and Endo or Weiler, D-part as well.
