book – Flip Outside the Box

Coach Laurie Gallus is promoting an intriguing new book, her first in a series of three.

It’s called Flip Outside the Box


She’s selected and illustrated “unique and creative gymnastics elements … which are not yet included in the JO Code of Points”.

Here’s one sample:


dismount – butterfly with double twist

… Actually, it looks more like 1 3/4 twist.

But I must admit, I’ve never seen or dreamed of this dismount. It is unique.

I’m not yet prepared to order the book for myself. But if you get a copy, please send us a review.

$25.00 plus $4.95 shipping and handling – details

(via Perfect 10)

UPDATE: Gail McGann, the judging director for Vermont, has reviewed the book and gives a positive reaction in an article called Off the mats, on to the page.
