“skew” on Magyar / Sivado

Sargis Siradegyan sKT posted this interesting variation in flare.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

The hands should be parallel on each step or take a deduction for skew.

I asked Canadian Head Coach Tony Smith his opinion on skew deduction in 2013. He feels most gymnast are getting deducted. But that those with a very high start score get deducted less than the rest.


If possible, use other (less deductible) D elements instead.
