Kevin Lytwyn – Def to mixed grip

Kevin Lytwyn is beast.

He’s a Ring man, 2nd at Commonwealth Games. But a Ring man with great Horizontal Bar. Watch his 14.866 Commonwealth Bronze medal routine. (VIDEO) Tak 1/2 to Def at the END of the routine.

Check what Kevin’s working now.

Many would name Oleg as the man with the best chance to catch Uchimura in the AA. Verniaiev went 90.400 at Blume including a poor FX routine.

The catch?

Oleg’s H Bar is far, far weaker than the King.

On the other hand, Oleg’s improved, no longer looking like a USA J.O. Level 10.

If the Code changes, however, and I believe it will, this routine could be very low start score in 2017.

Thank Tassilo du Mesnil for the link.

Terrible Rybalkos, however. Let’s pray those skills gets devalued in the next Code.

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!
