the Mostepanova on Beam

One of the many naming blunders perpetuated by FIG WTC is the Mostepanova on Beam.

It’s still called the Onodi in the Code.

  1. It’s not an error; this has happened countless times in gymnastics. The Soviets never submitted the skill, therefore it couldn’t be named after Mostepanova.


  2. Perhaps it is a different element when it is at the end of a flight series rather than when it is from a standing position?
