Bretschneider is the trick of the year, the first “H” value skill in the Men’s Code.

If he competes the layout Bretschneider in future, it should be “I” rated. :-)

new Men’s skills announced

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.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube. (6.4)

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.

Gabby Douglas possible 6.3 Bar routine

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

Isabela Onyshko competed a 6.3 at Elite Canada, by comparison.

Honma layout on P Bars?

gymnastikfabriken asks whether or not this is a new skill?

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

It’s typically done piked. Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

Simone Biles – 6.8 FX routine

sporteverywhere edited together a very realistic upgraded routine.

It starts at 16.8 if you credit the double layout 1/1-out as an H-part.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

I’m keen to see what Biles and Skinner compete on Floor at American Cup. It’s a good time to try upgrades.
