video – most frequent SPOT in gymnastics

Seems the most often spotted skill in competition in 2008 is this one — sometimes called “shoot half” on Bars.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

This is not really a “safety” spot.

Most often, I think, the gymnast is more confident IF the coach stands in. She has a better chance of catching closer to handstand with the spotter there.

(I did not get the name of this coach at the Chicago Style competition 2008, unfortunately.)
