Seems the most often spotted skill in competition in 2008 is this one â€” 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.)
