Paula Mejia – Kasamatsu + 1 1/2

I said “I’ll be very surprised if any female gymnast competes Kas + 1 1/2 or Tsuk 2 1/2 in 2015.”

Check out Paula Mejia in training.

It’s a Kas rather than a Tsuk due to direction of the twist. Left arm contacts horse first (right twisting round-off), then salto twist to the left.

Paula is age-20. From Puerto Rico training at Universal Gymnastics with coach Maria Gonzalez. She hopes to qualify to Pan-Am Games in Toronto this summer.

Most gymnasts tend to rush the twist off the table. Here are examples of gymnasts who REALLY set before initiating the twist.
