The Unnoficial "Hannah" Element! 🤸🏼‍♂️ . So I have been working this skill for a long time now, and kept it under wraps as I was hoping to compete it at this year's World Univeristy Games and receive that accolade all gymnasts dream of – having a skill named after them! Unfortunatley I was unable to attend this competition and therefore wouldn't be able to debut my skill. HOWEVER I decided even if it doesn't get officially named after me, at least I can be the very first person in the world to compete it! So here it is! A handspring with front salto and 1/2 turn in competition at the British Championships (Morandi 1/2). I submitted it to the officials, of whom some are senior members of FIG and I was given an E-Value . The floor is quite literally open now for anyone who wishes to take the skill as their own! But I will always be able to say I was still the first to compete it! (Even if it wasn't perfect on the day- I am still over the moon to have competed it) . @gymnasticshighlights @gymnastics.spotlight @gymnastics_intl @supremegymnastics @men_gymnastics @pure_gymnastics @gym_storage @insidegym @usagym @nilemw #Loughborough #GabesGradLife #Graduate #GradLife #WorkingGymnast #fitness #BritishChampionships #GymnasticsHighlights

  1. It’s stupid that he can’t get it named after him. They really should name skills after gymnasts who compete new skills at national competitions.
