Bar releases with 1/2 turns – CONTROVERSY

It’s easy to catch a release to Cross Grip without turning in the air.

It’s very difficult to complete the 180° twist prior to regrasp.

MOST will end up doing something in-between.

Rather than make judges decide, problem would be solved if the 1/2 turn skills were considered a different skill for difficulty — but be awarded the same value.

 Georgia-Mae Fenton, for example, could compete Church and Church 1/2 turn and be credited 2 different skills with E value.

It’s an imperfect compromise, but the best I can come up with.
