Jossimar Calvo – Bretschneider?

Is this one or two twists?

Cabriole is certain both releases are single twists. I guess he’s right. That vantage is confusing, however.

Entrenamiento de hoy!!! ????

Bretschneider has not competed the skill at Worlds or Olympics. It will be named for whomever competes it first. Worlds 2015, I assume.

I’d vote for the Bretschneider (double twisting Kovacs) in competition. :-)

Leave a comment if you were as impressed by any other skills (not in a pit) in 2014.

Chenglong Zhang – ripped grip

In the Horizontal Bar final at Worlds 2014 Zhang broke one of his grips. Then was allowed to continue well after his 30 seconds was over.

We’ve heard FIG MTC plans to allow gymnasts time to get a new grip in the future. But that rule change was not in effect for 2014.

Has anyone heard any follow up from FIG on this incident?
