unusual P Bar dismounts

Last week I helped out at Taiso, Saskatoon, as the Head Coach — Markos Baikos — was away at an international meet.

Parallel Bars dismounts are boring. Almost everyone competes double pike. A couple of the guys started playing with alternatives.

One reason I’m happy that Marcel is our Olympic Silver medalist in the AA is his very cool P Bar dismount.

The only gymnasts I saw do a p bars dismount that wasn’t a double back piked at the 2012 Olympics:

1-2 Daniel Corral and Mykola Kuksenkov : Double front tucked
3. David Belyavskiy: Double front piked
4. Marcel Nguyen: full twisting double back
