• Deduction 0.3

Recognition of Swallow versus Support scale (Planche)

• In order to provide clarity; if the shoulder is completely above the top of the Rings the element will be recognized as a support scale.

• Regarding the performance expectations for the exit from the Czech giant swing; A simple stoop exit from dorsal hang is permitted without an angular deviation deduction, but also does not receive any value.
