Pak to handstand – Laura Martinez

NastiaFan101 linked to this routine from Spanish gymnast Laura Martinez (2001) as an example of a “horrifying” routine due to composition. (overuse of Stalder / Endo)

Sacramonious joked that it’s surrealistic like a Dali painting.

Click PLAY or watch Laura’s Bars on YouTube.

Personally, I like it. An original, interesting routine with a superb dismount.

But I only posted because of the Pak to handstand. Has anyone ever come closer to handstand without going over?

Very cool.
