FIG MTC NEWSLETTER #28 was posted.

BRETSCHNEIDER gets the H value double twisting Kovacs. Congratulations.

You might ask why. He didn’t compete it at Worlds 2014.

Here’s why.

MAG Naming of New Elements:

Any new element performed at an FIG registered competition with an official FIG TD or FIG MTC member participating in an official role (local TD, continental TD, Superior Jury, Apparatus Supervisor, or Jury of Appeals) is eligible for new element recognition in the Code of Points. A video of the completed element must be given to the TC member in attendance for later review and evaluation at the following MTC meeting.

Ferhat’s amazing new dismount from P Bars (G value) was not given name credit because of his bent knees. I dunno. It looks pretty good from this angle. (VIDEO)

They aren’t as straight as the new vault – RI Se Gwang 2. Double front pike with half twist.

Horizontal Bar

• Yamawaki ½ will need to have all turning continue in the same direction for the increase in letter value. If the element turns in two different directions, the element will not be recognized by the D jury.

We’re praying that Yamawaki will be devalued next Code. And that releases catching in mixed grip will be the same skill. One crappy Yamawaki is bad enough. Two is twice as ugly.

Next newsletter will finally address these issues:

• Exceeding the allowable time for a fall (Sam Mikulak on P Bars)

• Broken handguard (grip) rule (Zhang Chenglong)


FIG MTC broke their own rules at Worlds 2014 with those two athletes. It’s about time they answer for that.

good Yurchenko preflight

I like Boise’s Kelsey Morris. Low on. And with feet together before contacting the table.

See it on twitter.

It sounded a very rough meet.
